SOUND COMMUNITY SERVICES INC
February 19, 2011

I have been on the board of Sound Community Services since 2004 and I have been the secretary since 2007. My day job is as a neuroscientist, so to me it made sense to volunteer my time with an organization that provides practical help to the people afflicted with the disorders that I study. It has been my great pleasure to experience the caring and dedication of the members of the board with the majority of them serving three consecutive three year terms and then taking the mandatory year off only to return again. I think that speaks to everyone's commitment to the cause of caring for people with mental health issues.

I have also had the priviledge to meet with many of the employees of SCS and have seen their dedication first hand. They are obviously passionate about what they do and I hope to continue to work with and learn from them for years to come.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with one of the board members, who is also a client. She has made amazing achievements in the few years that I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with her.

Ways to make it better...

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

hope to be able to raise more money to keep their much needed services available long into the future!

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I have been a member of the board for 7 years. Most recently I have been involved with some of the fundraising efforts and I am working on a monthly newsletter to help educate the public about the services provide by SCS.
