It’s been an exciting year here at Buckelew Programs, and I am honored that in January I was chosen to serve as Buckelew’s Executive Director. During these past several months, I have seen the difference that our services make in people’s lives:
• People like “George”, who was living on the street, tormented by voices and physically ill. Because of Buckelew Programs’ Supported Housing, he now has a safe place to live, and is taking care of his health.
• “Lucy”, who nearly died from alcohol poisoning the last time she was taken to the Emergency Room. Because of Buckelew Programs’ Helen Vine Recovery Center, she is now clean and sober for over a year.
• “Marie”, a survivor of sexual abuse, who saw no way out of her nightmare of pain, shame and fear. Because of Buckelew Programs’ Family Service Agency of Marin’s Suicide Prevention and Crisis Hotline, she was able to see the first glimmer of hope. Today, she is in counseling, and looking forward to graduating from high school.
We couldn’t do what we do without you. It’s your support that helps people like George, Lucy and Marie. It’s your support that saves lives.
This is the season of giving – and the season of giving thanks. All of us here at Buckelew Programs are so grateful for the support we receive from people like you!
