Kristin Brooks Hope Center

My work with the Executive Director of the Hope Center has been nothing short of amazing. We have been on a long journey together to change the stigma of mental illness and help provide services to those in need. I've seen KBHC continually rise above challenges and deliver services in the best interest of the mental health consumer. I've seen the organization take difficult stances in regards to funding because it was the right thing to do - not because it was the most financially beneficial. You can be assured this organization is always making sacrifices and doing work on the behalf of those with any type of brain disease.
