PT Peer Connector

Safe Harbor recently began a new program, “Peer Bridging” as a result of a grant we received.  We recently filled our PT Peer Connector position, with Jessica DelGreco.  Jessica hails from Ohio State University, and brings with her experience and a network of volunteers.  We are so excited to have her join our family.

New Board Member

I wanted to introduce everyone to Martha Spohn White, as a new Co-Chair for our Board of Directors.  We are so excited to have her join the team.  I wanted to share some of her background and information.
Business/Profession: Licensed Social Worker (LSW) and Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor with Clinical Supervision Endorsement (LICDC-CS); retired from career in the adult and juvenile criminal justice systems. I am currently not on any other boards nor member of any other nonprofit or civic organization. 
Brief autobiographical sketch: I was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin and have lived in Central Ohio for over 40 years. My professional background began in marketing and public relations and I felt called to direct service and earned my master’s degree at MTSO, Delaware, OH, in alcohol and drug abuse ministry (MA, ADAM) when the program was in its early stages. I worked for almost 30 years with the Ohio Department of Youth Services, the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services, and the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services in many capacities, both inside correctional facilities and in central office positions. I recently retired from the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. My husband and I have a blended family of three adult children and five grandchildren. We live in a wooded area in Delaware County and enjoy spending time out of doors.
Why I want to be on the Board of Safe Harbor: I believe everyone is entitled to the resources and the support that will allow them to live their best life. As a social worker, I have worked hard to understand and practice cultural diversity and inclusion and believe these values are at the core of our expression of our humanity. Providing support to individuals with a substance use disorder or a mental health diagnosis is important to me and being a part of Safe Harbor would allow me to be of service to others. I have enjoyed a collegial relationship with the Executive Director of Safe Harbor and know her to be an exemplary individual and I would be honored to be part of the organization, filling my role as a board member. I have recently retired, so I have the time to commit to a board position.
Please join me in welcoming Martha to the organization!!!!
Angi Lee, Executive Director
