Strategy, board and staff development, CEO coaching and merger facilitation
PRS is one of the largest human services nonprofits operating in Northern Virginia and Washington DC. It exists "so that individuals living with mental illness, substance use disorders, mild intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, and anyone who faces life crises can achieve safety, personal wellness, recovery and community integration." It provides a wide range of services, including Recovery Academy Day Programs, Community Support Services, Employment Services, Community Housing, and PRS CrisisLink. Over the last five years, it has grown significantly, expanding into Washington DC and Loudon County and merging with CrisisLink.
Richard first worked with PRS in 2004, on strategy. Since then he has provided support for board and staff leadership team development and coached the CEO. Most recently, in 2013 and 2014, he facilitated the process of the merger between PRS and CrisisLink.
