The smallest act of caring can turn a day around, but a large act of caring can turn a life around.

Offensive tackle Ryan Harris has spent years protecting quarterbacks, but off the field, he spends his time protecting and serving some ailing members of the Denver community.

Nearly all Broncos players have a hand in some kind of community service project whether it’s Brian Dawkins serving as a spokesman for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or Champ Bailey serving dinner to the homeless at the Denver Rescue Mission.

However, Ryan Harris has taken community service to a whole new level. In September of 2010, the Broncos 2007 third round draft pick launched his own company aimed at providing medical and non-medical care for people in the comfort of their own homes. Rather than going into assisted living centers or withstanding lengthy hospital stays, Harris Home Health keeps comfort at the forefront.

“This company is an extension of my service in the community I’m in,” Harris said.

Harris has been involved in other local service projects, but the desire to start a home health care business really tugged at his heart.
