This month, the La Verne Chamber celebrated their 2021 Excellence in La Verne Awards. David & Margaret Youth and Family Services was honored to receive the award for Non-Profit of the Year for excellence in providing critical services and supporting at-risk communities during the coronavirus pandemic. David & Margaret was recognized for the broadening of services with the opening of COMPASS Point which supports young adults with a history of foster care, demonstrating creativity and innovation in meeting the needs of the La Verne community, promoting volunteerism, demonstrating growth and stability, and making a worthwhile impact on society and individuals.

The merging of these two organizations will expand the breadth and depth of services provided to foster youth, students with disabilities, and families in need of therapeutic support.

David & Margaret Youth and Family Services is pleased to announce new leadership for its Board of Directors. Bob Dalton was appointed board president at the board meeting held on August 3, 2020. Bob’s appointment comes as Sabina Sullivan completes her second term as board president. The board is responsible for the high-level leadership and decision-making for the organization, including determining its mission and purpose, providing financial oversight, ensuring legal and ethical integrity and accountability, strategic planning, and much more.
