Liz Tutino has been promoted to the position of residential manager for our Harford County residential program.  We look forward to working with her in her new role and are very glad she is still nearby!

Monika Butke has joined us as a new full-time rehabilitation counselor effective this week.  Monika brings with her some fantastic experience in behavioral and educational plan creation.  In addition to her mental health background, she packs strong capabilities in the MR, substance abuse, and forensics areas.  She has a master’s in forensic psychology with a concentration in substance abuse from John Jay College of Criminal Justice / CUNY.

Wanda Moore is gradually stepping into her new role as a part-time counselor with the PRP during late June.  Since her hire as a driver several weeks ago she has spent every spare moment when not driving helping out in the computer lab, in the community room, and with classes.  More on her background and experience here.

Thanks for the Tickets!

The City of Aberdeen occasionally helps out social service agencies with Ripken Stadium baseball tickets.

Several Key Point clients and employees are very happy right now that we will get to go to an Iron Birds baseball game one lovely Saturday evening this June.

We’d like to thank Scott Hunsinger and the city for making this a happy place to live and do business!
