Chuck Hahn (President) and his wife Judy moved to Grand Rapids from Midland, Michigan in 2007 upon his retirement from the position of Chief Tax Officer of The Dow Chemical Company. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, with degrees in economics, finance and law.
He first became involved with Servants Center as a volunteer, beginning in 2007 and continuing today. In 2010 he became President of the Board. “As a volunteer I get to see everyday the effect Servants Center has on the lives of its clients through housing, medical care, food and help with other needs. I get to know the clients and appreciate how wonderful and fascinating they are, but also see how many difficulties they face but cannot deal with alone. I can see what a difference being treated with dignity and respect makes, and with some I become a trusted friend. What a privilege!”
Chuck is active in other Urban Ministry activities, including heading the Urban Ministry team at Thornapple Evangelical Covenant church from 2007 to 2014. He also has a strong interest in housing, serving for many years as Treasurer and then President of Midland Area Homes, a non-profit housing repair agency in Midland.

"What drew me to the Servants Center was the mission. Jesus spoke about helping the poor on a regular basis - so much that it is impossible to ignore. And to give and help with humility, and without pride. Servant Center is doing exactly that! Since I have a hard time carrying that out in practice (like many people), by joining the board I have been able to be a part of that mission."
