Recovering Crisis Center Approves New Board Members
Recovering from funding issues, staff turnover and reduction, the Crisis Center approved the applications of six new members to their board of directors. They replaced members that left the board over funding concerns that affected the nonprofit’s future. The community meeting proved that there is interest in continuing the agency’s work of providing the region with 24-hour suicide prevention, domestic abuse support and other services. The new board members include a retired business executive Bob Frank who has experience managing nonprofit agencies, former counselor Laura Blankenship, retired social worker Jim Estep, social worker Leslie Webb, business owner Angela Vandergriff and Jennifer Vanover who holds a doctorate degree in social work. The center will also assemble an advisory committee of local experts to work with the board and staff. The initial meeting is expected in January. (bg)
