The Center for Loss and Bereavement’s Active Board Members are an integral part of the organization’s leadership team and serve as ambassadors of the mission.  These individuals have committed their time and talents in helping the Center’s staff and volunteers  maintain excellence in client programming and professional community engagement, while ensuring that financial sustainability is supported.  Their hope is that all who encounter those representing the Center are met with compassion, integrity, and quality care.  Each board member joins the Center’s staff directors in strategic planning, and serves on a committee related to Organizational Leadership, Funding and Development, Programming, or Community Relations.
