Personal Impact Stories

“Honestly, I can’t imagine any workplace as a whole being more supportive than Beech Brook has been. ”

Jennifer, REACH Program

“In 1852 Beech Brook opened its doors to care for children orphaned by the cholera epidemic. Sixty-six years later, there were the orphans of the Spanish Flu pandemic. Today there are the new orphans of the COVID-19 pandemic - as many as 5.2 million worldwide.”

“Despite the disruption of his teen years, which including missing lots of school, Alexavier remained highly motivated to finish his education. It wasn’t easy, but he got back on track, and both he and his brother crossed the finish line on time and graduated from high school. ”

“I suppose I never really realized how much of a jackpot my position with Beech Brook was until things got serious! All I can say is, I am beyond grateful to be a part of the Beech Brook family!”

Lauren, Foster Parent Recruiter

“Beech Brook was a voice for us when I believed there was nowhere left to turn. They were able to make what I had been told was impossible, possible.”

“"It was a very meaningful experience for the parents and for me as a therapist. The parents have gained insights into other ways to discipline. They talk about their parenting styles now, something they didn’t realize they needed to discuss previously. The stepdad sees the importance of using different techniques, depending on the age and needs of the child. They talk about things now as a family. There’s more negotiating and use of techniques such as setting up contracts to outline expectations.””

Emily Slusarz, Therapist

“I love working at Beech Brook because I have the power to tell children they have a future. I will not let them feel alone.”

Toni Zingale, Social Worker and School-Based Therapist at Beech Brook

“We are so grateful for all Beech Brook has done for us. We don’t know where we would be if we didn’t have your guidance and support.”

“Small but mighty. That’s one way to describe her. Katie has always been petite for her age but, as Rick says with a smile, she’s always been “big in voice and actions.””

Rick Rule-Hoffman, Beech Brook Art Therapist

“How much we touch a person’s heart is hard to evaluate at times, but it should never be doubted. Our work is so important and the connections we develop are so valuable.”

Felicia, School-Based Supervisor

“I’ve come to the conclusion that even when we are physically separated by distance, our core concepts and philosophies of who we are, what our goal is, and why we are doing what we are doing shall never waiver. For even from a virtual first-time meeting, people can tell when you are sincere.”

Ron Robinson, PAR Program Coordinator
