BROOKLINE COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH CENTER INC
July 1, 2011
I joined the Board about 4 years ago, previously having hardly been aware of the existence of the Brookline Community Mental Health Center. It didn't take long to realize the wonderful compassion and dedication of the Board's staff, and to appreciate the Center's role at the heart of Brookline. Its services to families, individual adults, and children, as well as its involvement with the public schools and collaboration with other town agencies, all contribute mightily to the vibrancy of this community. And the Center provides its services to all who come through its doors with dignity and efficiency. The generous support it has won from so many Brookline residents and businesses testifies to its success.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
discussing the work of the Center with its clinicians, and learning about the experiences of its clients. I've also seen the dedication of the staff and the Board's leaders in many meetings and events.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
continue to grow its ability to attract significant support from Brookline residents and major Boston-area businesses in order to nourish the Center's ability to serve its clients, to innovate, and to inspire similar efforts in other communities.
Board Member & I continue to serve on the Board, and have worked on our two major fundraising events as well as periodic gatherings to develop community support. .
