More than 150 people gathered at the Great Lakes Culinary Center on Sept. 6 for Kadima’s Annual Meeting sponsored by Vesco Oil Corporation. The agency recognized Barbara Kratchman as Community Volunteer of the Year, Kroger Co. of Michigan as Community Partner of the Year, Malik Burch as Client Volunteer and Tiffany Lee as Employee of the Year.
Kadima’s leadership spoke about the agency’s services and vision for the future. Kadima President Evan Leibhan installed seven new board members.
“This was the largest board installation for the agency in recent history and is a sign of our continued growth and the community’s greater understanding of the work we do,” says Eric Adelman, executive director. “This is an exciting time for Kadima. Our programs and partnerships continue to evolve, while new volunteers continue to come on board to support individuals with chronic mental health challenges in our community.”
