March For­ward: A Mes­sage from our CEO

Dsc 0377

After the ter­ri­fy­ing and trag­ic school shoot­ing in Flori­da, Amer­i­cans across the coun­try are call­ing for change. Some of that change is direct­ly relat­ed to how we serve peo­ple with men­tal ill­ness. At KYC, a sig­nif­i­cant part of our mis­sion is to sup­port chil­dren, youth, adults, and fam­i­lies across the behav­ioral health spectrum.

From clients who need help get­ting through a dif­fi­cult moment in their lives to those with chron­ic, life­long men­tal ill­ness, we’re proud to work with peo­ple from all walks of life. For many, we are the only refuge for ser­vices. More than 84% of our behav­ioral health clients make less than $10,000 a year. To pro­tect our work with these clients, we’re com­mit­ted to rais­ing pri­vate dol­lars to sub­si­dize their care and ensure our abil­i­ty to con­tin­ue to serve these most vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers of our com­mu­ni­ty, regard­less of their abil­i­ty to pay. Because of this com­mit­ment, we’ve set lofty goals for our upcom­ing event.

On June 9th, we hope to cel­e­brate our most suc­cess­ful Run/​Walk in our his­to­ry, look­ing to you to help us raise $80,000 for our pro­grams. It will require all of us to hus­tle and help to hit this tar­get, but the funds are vital to sup­port our clients. Please join us in our com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing qual­i­ty and com­pas­sion­ate ser­vices through men­tal health and senior ser­vices. Reg­is­ter to fundraise with us and save the date to cel­e­brate on June 9thas we ensure our community’s health and safety.

Until April,

Susan E. Cowen
Pres­i­dent and Chief Exec­u­tive Officer
