NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

“When it was recently announced that longtime YES Community Counseling Center Executive Director Jamie Bogenshutz was stepping down from her position after 40 years, the nonprofit community-based organization didn’t have to look far for an heir apparent. Next in line is current YES Associate Director Adrienne LoPresti, who has been with YES since 1997—when she joined as an intern and then moved to full-time status after obtaining her BSW at Marist College and Master’s in Social Work from Adelphi University….”                        ….Massapequa Observer

YES’ Board of Directors and Staff presented Jamie Bogenshutz, YES Executive Director of 40 years with building plaques in her honor. Her legacy will continue!
