From the Executive Director
Dear HC Friends and Supporters,

There are many exciting changes happening at the Hancock Center and I wanted to take a moment to get you caught up on some of them as we work together towards our goal of becoming financially sustainable beyond the generous Foundation support we currently receiv e.
We began the year formally moving Robyn Lending Halsten, MA, BC-DMT, DTRL, LPC into the role of Clinical Director for the Hancock Center. This is a new position and I am excited that she will now have the opportunity to bring her clinical experience and training to the forefront of our work. She will bring excellence to her role providing oversight and adherence to the ethics and standards of practice in HC's clinical service delivery. She has already had a positive impact on the work we are doing.
I am equally excited to announce that Jeanine Kiss, MA, BC-DMT, DTRL  will be leading our in-school programming following the recent retirement of Rena Kornblum from the Hancock Center. Jeanine and the staff team are enthusiastically preparing for the new school year. They will be updating our DMT services to meet the needs relevant to today's school communities.    
I am pleased that Laura Rogers has agreed to expand her role as Program Coordinator, and will have a greater impact in program coordinationcommunications, and in ensuring accuracy and fidelity in our grant and service reporting.  
I am grateful for the commitment that the HC staff and community has shown to the center's mission for the past 35 years. We are excited about the new opportunities for service and collaboration in the next year, and look forward to a growth-filled and healthy long-term future with you.
Please mark your calendars for our Annual Meeting and Luncheon, Thursday, November 29, 2018.
