Friends of Youth has recently added two new members, Joan McBride and Vincent Hayes to its Board of Directors.
McBride just ended her term as Mayor of Kirkland in December. She was a founding member of the Eastside Human Services Forum and is a former Friends of Youth employee. Hayes, a Renton resident, is a graduate of Friends of Youth’s Griffin Home program who went on to earn a master’s degree in social work.
“Joan and Vince are joining Friends of Youth at an exciting time,” said Friends of Youth President and CEO Terry Pottmeyer. “Our capital campaign to address youth homelessness is over 90 percent to goal and three of our four projects are completed. We look forward to Joan and Vince’s leadership as we work toward a better future for at-risk youth in our community.”
Friends of Youth delivers a comprehensive range of therapeutic services for youth, young adults and families. For more information, visit www.friendsofyouth.org.
