SLMHC celebrates staff’s service
Patient centered, service oriented, performance focused.

At the event February 2 numerous staff were acknowledged for long term service, retirement, and other special recognition.
Out of the Cold continues shelter services
“Is it perfect? No, but if you’re dealing with humans nothing is perfect.
