During difficult times of stress, hardship, fear and uncertainty as is the case with the Covid-19 pandemic, people need as much support and guidance as possible.

Hoffer Plastics fully embraces this notion, and recently initiated an onsite Chaplaincy program. The Chaplain provides an additional, confidential resource to Hoffer’s employee family as an augment to the company’s Human Resources staff available 24/7.

The Chaplaincy program is free to all employees, is non-denominational, and is completely voluntary. Our Chaplain, Everett Gutierrez, is onsite at Hoffer each week. He provides skilled counseling, support and guidance to resources on almost any issue an employee wants to share.
