FROM THE BOARD
Board Chairman Laura Meck
"We are thrilled to be part of the larger county initiative whereby clients will have comprehensive wrap around services through the collaboration afforded by sharing a single system for point of reference. Our system navigator will be able to identify necessary resources, connect with the proper organization and facilitate engagement.
Through this initiative we hope that our families will feel a greater sense of connection to the community. Our collective goal is to experience more positive outcomes."
