YCS Chairperson Dominick D'Agosta appreciates the services provided by Dennis C. Miller. "Dennis provided invaluable guidance to me, to our board and to the search committee as we worked to select a leader for our 100-year-old agency. We wanted someone who has the skill sets necessary to lead us into the future, in addition to having a passion for our mission. Dennis and his staff presented us with several outstanding candidates. His honesty, knowledge and good humor helped us stay focused on selecting the right candidate. We will continue to work with Dennis during the transition period, relying on his counsel and experience. He was, and is, a pleasure to work with."
The mission of YCS is to partner with at-risk and special needs individuals, birth through adulthood, to build happier, healthier, more hopeful lives within their families and communities. This mission is at work each day, helping to make a real difference in the lives of children - some have been affected b y trauma, many others are challenged by developmental/intellectual disabilities and co-occurring mental health issues. YCS also provides extensive community-based prevention programs to assist families before problems arise.
Please join us in congratulating Tara. We are confident that she will be a terrific leader for YCS!
