I’m proud to support an organization that helps them to find a resource that knows their world."

Steven Olender - Secretary
Marketing Manger - CASA of Travis County
"Mental healthcare is basic right, not a privilege for those who can afford it. I've seen too many suffering people in this community who can't get the help they need because they can't afford the care they need or can't find services that affirm their identity."

Javier Lemus, CPA - Treasurer
Assurance Senior Manger - PWC
"Growing up in South Texas, there weren't many options for people to go to for assistance. Learning about Waterloo's mission and what they have to offer gave me a sense of hope that one day we could provide access to affordable mental healthcare to anyone in our community. I'm honored to be part of an organization which strives to achieve that goal."
