Mission: The Cole Resource Center is an education and recovery community of peers and family members, dedicated to helping people affected by mental health challenges lead full and healthy lives.

Impact Model:


Lack of access to vital mental health resources


Those with mental illness and family members


Building self-esteem, breaking isolation, making connections, providing hope and guidance, and raising public awareness about mental illness


Those living with mental health challenges become more actively engaged in their own recovery, empowered to build healthier lives



We share hope and a conviction that recovery from mental illness is achievable.

Current Status and Project Goals:  We believe that our work at CRC is of increased importance after more than two years of the pandemic. Mental health issues are widely recognized as a national crisis, and the shortcomings of our mental healthcare system underlie so many other societal problems. CRC makes a small but remarkably effective impact by offering custom navigation to individuals who live with mental health conditions and their families.

In 2022, CRC faces a critical transition for a small nonprofit: moving to the next phase of the organization after a successful pandemic “rescue” by a team of professionals working pro bono. The next phase requires systemizing operations to support increased scale, carefully managing program expansion, continuing to nurture multi-year financial sustainability, and making the challenging cultural shift to add selected paid staff. We are at a critical inflection point and would welcome external expertise and perspectives on planning and implementing this transition.

  • Strategy
  • Communications
