We were shocked and horrified yesterday to learn about the situation involving the threats by Steve Stephens and the tragic shooting of Mr. Godwin. Our hearts go out to his family during this time of grief.

Beech Brook’s offices will be closed today out of concerns for the safety of our staff, clients and other visitors to our sites. This includes the administrative headquarters at 3737 Lander Road in Pepper Pike and our Family Drop-In Center, located on the second floor of the Carl B. Stokes Social Services Building at 6001 Woodland Ave. A decision will be made later today about the re-opening of the buildings.

Mr. Stephens has been a Beech Brook employee since 2008. He has been working as a vocational specialist for our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team for youth and young adults. since April of 2015. Prior to that, he had worked as a youth mentor.
