Our May 4th Food for Thought Luncheon was a terrific success! Guests were inspired by the message of our keynote speaker, Shannon Heffernan, mental health reporter for WBEZ radio, and enjoyed the Knollwood Club's lovely amenties and cuisine. Our event was extra special this year, as friends and family gathered to recognize Jim Shackelford, YFC’s retiring Clinical Director, who is stepping down after seven years at the helm of our agency. Jim shared highlights of his impressive 50 year career, and touched our hearts with his warm Southern storytelling.
Food For Thought celebrated the start of Mental Health Awareness Month, and raised almost $25,000 to provide mental health counseling to low income, underinsured families in our community.
