All Kinds of News for July 12, 2017
PRN for Families is excited to announce that Charles Elias, the founder and director of PRN for Families, will be taking on a clinical role in the development and opening of BaMidBar Wilderness, a new outdoor behavioral healthcare program that is based on principles of Judaism.
“The close-knit nature of programs and referral sources in the parent choice behavioral healthcare industry often means that news of personnel and programmatic changes travels quickly, and the number of program closures in recent years also means that our collective antennae are on high alert as to what such announcements may really mean in terms of a program’s overall health and stability,” said Charles. “We wish to assure you that PRN for Families is in no danger of closing our doors, that the program has not been sold or acquired, and that the delivery of our customized, home-based family preservation services remains strong and available to families and clients who may benefit.”
Although he will be stepping back from a direct clinical role with new clients — with the exception of those with whom he is already committed to working — Charles will remain in the executive director role at PRN. In the coming months, PRN will be adding staff to build capacity and flexibility in recognition of a period of time in which Charles’s time will be stretched to accommodate his various responsibilities.
Over the past 14 years, PRN for Families has developed and maintained a reputation for customized programming, intensive provision of services, willingness to go above and beyond for clients, responsiveness and creativity in working with challenging and complex family systems. PRN for Families remains committed to providing families with the highest level of service, and to excellence in all aspects of our program delivery. If there are any questions about this transition, please contact Charles Elias directly at or at 970-923-2323.
