I have a passion to advocate for children and to support their development.

Where do you go for fun?
I most enjoy relaxing at home with my family.

Summer Clean-Up

“A time to get, and a time to lose. A time to keep, and a time to cast away.” – Ecclesiastes 3:6

Over the next few weeks, there will be items in the room by Bryan’s office going towards accounting. Please take what you want.

Also, if you have any items in your office or surrounding space that you don’t want, please add them to the collection. Any items left will be donated, hopefully by the end of July.


Farewell Dinner

Brickhouse Tavern
581 Howe Ave, Cuyahoga Falls

Everyone is invited to attend this farewell for Dae’vontay Latimer and a time of fellowship.

The Front Desk team has organized a farewell dinner for Dae’vontay who will be moving back this month to Dayton to pursue other opportunities that the Lord has for him. He will surely be missed as he has been a great asset to the front desk, clinicians, and the clients have come to cherish his presence at the front desk.

If you have not submitted your RSVP, please check with Jackie.

Front Desk Updates

Scheduling Clients Out
Please make sure to update the front desk if you are allowing clients to schedule more than 2 appointments at a time. An email was sent last week with a form attached but you can always send us a quick email, as well. We appreciate it!

Summer Schedules
Summer is here! Clinicians, please let the front desk know of any upcoming vacations or time off that you may need. It’s always preferred to block out schedules early than to reschedule clients. 😊
