A Message from CEO Anne Starr

2020 proves that Orchard Place delivers on our mission of developing strong futures even in the most unexpected circumstances. As a supporter of Orchard Place, you recognize that children’s mental healthcare is essential.

When COVID-19 concerns closed down schools and businesses, our multidisciplinary teams on campus continued to deliver around the clock care to Iowa’s most at-risk youth.

Across branches, more than 100 of our therapists, providers and other professionals began delivering treatment and services via telehealth to ensure continuity of care.

Research shows one in five children in Iowa will experience a mental health crisis. When a child is in crisis, we know the family is in crisis too. On behalf of the 7,535 children and families we provided essential care to this year, thank you!

You are essential to our mission.

In Gratitude, Anne
