Why I Serve
Why I Serve

Why I Serve

“I serve as a Board Member for KITM because I believe every child should have quality access to mental health resources to assist them and their families with transitions in family dynamics such as divorce, separation, and remarriage. Children need a place to safely share their feelings and work through family transitions. KITM allows for any family with any means access to those important and necessary resources.”

Join Our Board

Interested in joining our Board of Directors? If you have experience with boards and fundraising, have a good network of friends and business associates to connect to the organization, and feel a strong commitment to our mission, this might be the volunteer position for you.

Advisory Council

Advisory Council members serve in an advisory capacity to the Agency. In this capacity, the Council does not vote on Board matters and does not have governance authority. Council members have a unique opportunity to be involved without the full-time commitment of joining a Board of Directors. The Council advises the Board and/or staff on issues facing the Agency and keeps the Agency connected with the community at large.

Contact Information: For more information regarding the Kids In The Middle Advisory Council, please contact our Chief Executive Officer, Erin Eberhard, at eeberhard@kitm.org.
