Gratitude for Service--Todd Chase
After six years of diligent and able service, Todd Chase has rolled off the Board of Directors for Associates. He served two of those years as president of the board, then added an extra year to his term to ensure a smooth transition.
He leaves a strong Board that faces continuing challenges and significant need for financial support.
“Some of the biggest challenges continue to be funding,” Chase says. “I know that across the board in healthcare insurance reimbursements are going down, but the mental health field is a particularly tough environment right now. It has certainly opened my eyes to what those in the mental health deal with.”
Heath Greene, executive director at Associates, expressed gratitude for Chase’s service. “We appreciate him so much; he gave a lot of himself and was an effective servant leader on the Board. I’m also grateful for his continued friendship to Associates—he will remain an important member of our community.”
Chase felt that connection to Associates was easy. “I think almost everyone has someone they care about with a mental health issue, and I’m no different,” he says.
“For me, it was a wonderful experience to see the hearts of the staff members at Associates. They provide excellent and professional care, but also make sure their clients know where their worth really is—in Christ. That’s the kind of care that can make someone truly whole.”
