A Letter from Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services CEO

Dear Friends,
 
This year has brought monumental changes that included a global pandemic and a renewed call for social justice. We are reminded that we live in a rapidly changing world, and Jackson-Feild is a reflection of this world.
 
We are ever ready to adjust and adapt, always drawing upon our core values of service, compassion, dedication, integrity, and leadership. These values have guided us through 165 years of helping children who are experiencing the painful effects of trauma and/or mental illness.
 
I am proud of how we have proven our ability to acclimate to new and uncertain global environments. Confronted with this pandemic, each week has presented new challenges providing us with opportunities to demonstrate our flexibility and inventiveness. Our proactive and recurring measures have ensured that we have not had a positive case of COVID-19. Without hesitation, and through innovation, we have found new ways to better serve our children.
 
We continue to educate our children who could ill afford to miss instruction. We find ways to enrich and engage residents during these “dog days” of summer.
 
Our founder, the Rev. William M. Jackson, noted we have to be revolutionary from time to time. Now is such a time. Jackson-Feild provides daily opportunities to transform young lives thanks to caring folks like you. We embrace change that will strengthen us, as we remain true to our core values.
Warm regards,
 
Patricia H. Delano
President & CEO
