The without-whoms. The folks who keep the family business running “on the ground.” High-fives from our bus driver, fist-bump the security guy, all hail the brilliant counselors, teachers, artists, coaches, mentors, role models and hard-working everybody-elses. The heart and soul and energy these folks bring to work every day creates miracles on a regular basis.

It starts with leadership, and we have a passionate executive director who loves his job…

A dedicated circle of senior staff who bring heart and soul and care…

Jonathan Zeichner - Executive Director



Di Lam - Director of Development



Yvonne Styles, Ph.D. - Chief of Staff/Sr. Director of Counseling
