(Summit Pointe 49) Community Connection: Focusing on Resilience and Empowerment for Young People

Taking time to shed light on another of the powerful community connections Summit Pointe has in Calhoun County, we turn our attention to Starr Commonwealth.

With a 100+ year focus on healing the effects of trauma for young people, Starr Commonwealth’s EVP Derek Allen and our own CEO at Summit Pointe, Jeannie Goodrich, began to see some common goals – and how to achieve them by working together.

In this episode, the pair talks about what motivated them – and the amazing outcome called ”the REC” – or Resilience and Empowerment Center – a partnership that also includes the Battle Creek Family YMCA and some local schools. Click to hear more.
