Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw -Executive Director
Kathy Arnold is the Executive Director at Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw with over thirty years in business/marketing/project management. As an ordained minister, resource specialist, safe talk and CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management)team member she encourages those who are in crisis to move forward in their lives. She has coordinated many community outreach programs such as Community Mental Health Canopy, Men’s Outreach, Health fairs, Job fairs, Summer Youth Programs and teaches self-esteem, positive attitude, and anger control workshops.
In an effort to be a “good neighbor” and build community with our neighboring counties, Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw would like to establish Family Crisis Centers in Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, Oakland, and Wayne counties. Moving forward Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw will provide links for disaster training and certification through established resources. Before a disaster we will be there supporting each other by sharing knowledge and training that could save a life, and encourage others to lend a helping hand to those in need during disaster. Through training and building teams in each county we will gain the confidence needed to meet the needs of communities in each county when confronted with disaster. We will provide information to those interested in certified disaster training,and help network with current agencies within in each county that can share a wealth of information and disaster experience to build more "ready" teams.

WHAT IS THE LANDING?
The Landing is an ongoing program for students . . .based on the Beatitudes, where Jesus related the principles for happiness in the Sermon on the Mount. The Landing can help foster hope, truth and joy, as teenagers embark on an exciting journey of engaging videos, meaningful experiences, vibrant worship, and great conversation as they develop true, bonding friendships with others. We know that, in our world today, students struggle, on a daily basis, with things like depression, anxiety, loneliness, isolation, bullying, peer pressure, family conflict, self-worth, etc. The Landing is a place where students can feel welcomed and supported just as they are. The Landing is meant to not only walk with students through hurts, hang-ups and habits, but it is also a resource that can be applied in preventing future struggles.
