As a member of the Ozark Guidance Advocates, you will advance the Ozark Guidance mission of saving and changing lives by providing compassionate, quality mental health services in Northwest Arkansas.
We are a volunteer group of community leaders working in collaboration with the Ozark Guidance Governing Board, Foundation Board, and staff members to improve mental health in NWA. Our members are from diverse backgrounds and make a difference through their collective knowledge and skills. We help with fundraising, education, and mental health programs to benefit our community.
The Ozark Guidance Advocates are led by its Chairperson, Niki Traibman with First Security Bank. Quarterly meetings are scheduled and communicated by the Advocates Chair. Special project meetings will be held as needed throughout the year along with optional educational opportunities.
Active membership provides members with several leadership development opportunities. They are also instilled with the knowledge that they are making an impact in their community by advocating for a well-respected non-profit organization. Additionally, members can receive training in Mental Health First Aid and their employers have the opportunity to bring this training to their businesses.
