Staff - A Place Called Home skip to Main Content



Every day, hundreds of young people from eight years old to mid-twenties cross our threshold to receive support in strengthening their spirits and developing skills and relationships to lead healthy, productive lives and become contributing members of their communities.

It takes a community to raise a child: counselors, educators, artists, coaches, gardeners, chefs, drivers, custodians, volunteers, administrators, and more. The heart, soul, and inspiration our diverse staffers bring to their work each and every day saves lives and creates miracles.
