Hamilton Center continues the battle to bring mental health issues out of the shadows as we light the way for those in need of recovery and healing. As we move forward in the charge to wrap services around those who need mental health services, Hamilton Center is armed with an aggressive plan to strengthen our internal resources as well as the partnerships in our communities.

Hamilton Center’s Board of Directors is driving the corporation forward through their vision and strong leadership as they approved strategic plan that will chart the course for our organization. Our corporation’s mission, vision, and core values were at the forefront as the board set this strategic plan in motion.

This is an important year for our corporation as Hamilton Center Foundation, Inc. is now in operation to support the mission of Hamilton Center, Inc. With the full support of the corporation’s board, this Foundation will have a critical role in assuring the organization has the resources needed to provide the highest quality services.

We must not forget the people who provide these critical services within Hamilton Center – the employees. The corporation has taken aggressive steps to support our staff and to attract new professional staff with the necessary resources to show appreciation for their efforts. Through these supportive steps, the Board of Directors have shown that they value the employees who come to work every day and strive to meet the mission and vision of the corporation by putting the consumers first – to light the way for those in need.
