Community leader joins The Center to help address the challenge of our time: mental health
The Center for Integrative Counseling and Psychology is pleased to welcome its new Vice President for Development, community leader Susan Glassmoyer.
Center CEO Dr. Brad Schwall said: “Mental health needs in our community are great and growing, and we are well-suited to meet them, but we need more funding. Susan Glassmoyer consistently exceeds goals, raising critical funds and chairing signature events for organizations she believes in. We are so fortunate to have Susan sharing in the vital work we do here at The Center.”
Glassmoyer said: “I have worked on ‘the other side’ of deciding where donor funds should be directed. Mental health is truly the crisis of our time, and I feel called to take a deeper dive to make a difference in this critical area.”
Why give through The Center?
Glassmoyer said she grew up serving alongside her parents, whom she calls “generous and joyful givers.” Whether giving time, talent or treasure, Glassmoyer believes, “It is indeed more blessed to give than to receive.”
She said, “I have seen inspiring examples of people in our community giving generously. Scripture tells us that God loves a cheerful giver, and His goodness and love are certainly evident throughout this city I am proud to call home.”
Glassmoyer is committed to ensuring donors understand they are making a wise investment of their resources when they give through The Center, and that they can see and feel the ripple effects of their dollars at work.
Schwall explained, “The Center has 14 Center locations and numerous community partnerships with other non-profits. But therapy is often still not in the budget for many people. We must raise funds to bridge the gap not covered by insurance and to extend our reach into neighborhoods without access to quality mental health services. Our reputation for proven, successful outcomes has created a waiting list of clients and strategic agencies eager to partner with us.”
Glassmoyer concluded: “I will advocate passionately for The Center by researching and applying for grants and seeking friends and partners to come alongside us in our mission. I am eager to communicate with those who have hearts to give about The Center’s valuable history, our incredible staff and our tremendous opportunities for growth. We at the Center are in a place to bless our neighbors for generations to come.”
