In Mem­o­ry of Scott Parks

Scott

Father. Friend. Men­tal Health Advo­cate. Musi­cian. Writer. World Trav­el­er. Leader. 

Scot­t’s kind heart and thought­ful demeanor put oth­ers at ease and his play­ful sense of humor always left oth­ers smil­ing. Dur­ing his time work­ing at KYC, he cre­ative­ly and com­pas­sion­ate­ly led pro­gram­ming at the Mt. Prospect Drop-In Cen­ter, unit­ing guests and the com­mu­ni­ty with oppor­tu­ni­ties to social­ize, learn, and build aware­ness around peo­ple liv­ing with men­tal illness.

Scott was the for­mer Pres­i­dent and cur­rent Trea­sur­er for NAMI Schaum­burg Area, help­ing peo­ple in their recov­ery journey. 

Ken­neth Young Cen­ter is hum­bled to accept dona­tions in mem­o­ry of Scott as we con­tin­ue his work. He will be deeply missed by our team and clients. Our thoughts and hearts will remain with Scott, his fam­i­ly, and all who knew him.
