Taking action to save BHR!

We care about our clients and that’s why we want to be sure Behavioral Health Resources is here to serve our community with stable services into the future.  When management drives our organization into the ground, we need to stand up and take action.

For years staff have been making sacrifices to shore up the organization’s finances, and yet it’s still floundering.  We gave up nearly $400,000, mostly from our retirement fund, and we’ve foregone raises for 7 years.  Now we proposed a contract where we offer to assume another $300,000, this time in healthcare costs, yet management said no.  We can’t keep giving more and more while the organization keeps going down.  We need to end the mismanagement and change course.

We are standing up today to ensure that BHR will be here tomorrow: we need new leadership to fix our financial problems.

Join us in calling on the Board to replace top leadership and save BHR.  Visit to sign the petition.

  1. Sign the petition at and share it with your friends.
  2. Come to the community meeting on Wednesday, April 2 at 7pm at First Christian Church in Olympia.
  3. Write a letter to the Olympian in support of change at BHR.
