Sometimes even the best-considered relationships do not take the intended path. Today, we share that Naguib Gouda, who recently joined the Eli’s Place team, will pursue other opportunities. We wish Naguib well in his future endeavors.
Effective immediately, our Board Chair, Carol Cowan-Levine, will serve as our Interim Executive Director. Carol has secured temporary contract support and is actively engaged in recruiting a new Executive Director with the skills and experience needed to champion our capital campaign, acquire our property, and oversee all launch readiness activities.
Rest assured, our work continues at a rapid pace. We are quickly approaching the launch of the capital campaign, which will raise funds to secure and prepare our site, hire our operational team, and begin helping young adults with serious mental illness on their recovery journey.
