A Holiday Message from Chris Kughn, CEO, Buckelew Programs


It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day busyness of our lives, we often forget the reason that we work so hard is so that we can slow down and appreciate the people around us; the people in our lives who make all the effort worthwhile. Fortunately, there are days where we can’t help but notice and appreciate our family, friends and supporters who encourage us, inspire us and give us hope. I’m appreciative that Thanksgiving is one of those days!

As we approach the holidays, the message I want to share is one of immense gratitude. In a world that is still emerging from the pandemic, Buckelew staff remains focused on our mission to promote recovery, resilience and hope by providing services that enhance our client’s quality of life. Buckelew thrives because of our dedicated employees, invested volunteers and generous supporters like you, who make our work possible.

We have just released Buckelew Programs’ 2020-2021 Impact Report, which features stories of impact throughout our primary areas of service, featuring our own clients and staff. We hope you find it inspiring and informative.

May this season of thanks fill your home with warmth and happiness. We are deeply grateful for your continued friendship and support.

From all of us at Buckelew Programs…Happy Thanksgiving!

With compassion and gratitude,

Chris Kughn, LMFT
CEO, Buckelew Programs
