I have been a Board Member of Give an Hour since its inception in 2006. I do not have a Military Background but have always been inspired by those who devote so much of themselves to our country. I had been looking for ways to give back to those who give so much and Give an Hour afforded me a great opportunity to have an impact. Our focus has been on ensuring returning military (and their families) have access to free mental health services. We currently have over 6000 mental health professionals in our network who confidentially "give an hour" of their time each week to support those service members in need. There are so many heartwarming stories we hear from both recipients of the free mental health services and the mental health providers themselves that demonstrate a commitment to improving the lives of others. It is so inspiring to hear about the individuals whose lives have been turned around by having free confidential access to trained mental health professionals. Everyday I am grateful that I am afforded a chance to make a difference in other's lives through Give an Hour. It is truly a great organization and one that has and will continue to make a difference. The best is yet to come....

I haven't personally experienced results, but I have read testimonials from others that have.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make very few changes. The organization has grown quickly but has done so in a responsible way. The leadership is outstanding and the employees extremely dedicated. Finding ways to scale ouf efforts is going to be key as we continue to grow.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

Continue to grow its cadre of mental health professionals and ensure that Military personnel and their families are aware of the services Give an Hour provides.
