With a new year comes change and after 10 years of leadership our President and CEO, King Stumpp, will retire from Netcare Access in July of 2021.
During King’s tenure, Netcare transitioned from adolescent and adult crisis to focus on adults only, expanded our values to include trauma informed care, partnered with like-minded agencies to take on projects like the Homeless Hotline, added the Mobile Crisis Response teams that pair an officer with a Netcare clinician to ensure safety in the community and saw us through multiple renovations and facility improvements.
We are well prepared for the future, thanks in part to King, and we sincerely appreciate the impact his leadership has had on our agency for the past decade.

We regretfully, had to postpone our 3rd Annual Community Awards and Recognition Dinner scheduled for Wednesday, October 7 at the Columbus Museum of Art until 2021. However, we don’t want to miss the opportunity to share the stories of our former clients and the vital work we do here everyday as we work with thousands of individuals in need of crisis services. This is our community at work and together we can end the stigma surrounding mental health and substance use.
We are delighted to be the recipient of a $5,000 grant from the Columbus Realtors Foundation. This grant will provide partial funding of a project to renovate and upgrade the outdoor areas of Miles House, our residential treatment facility located in the Hilltop that typically serves low income adults coping with mental health or substance use issues.
