Santa Anita Family Service Has New President, Expanded Board

Santa Anita Family Service, with offices in Monrovia, has a new president and several new board members, as the organization continues to grow and expand its services throughout the San Gabriel Valley.
Barbara Veenstra, a resident of Temple City and a vice president of Citizens Business Bank, has been elected to head the organization's Board of Directors. She succeeds Dick Singer of Monrovia, who had served as President of the Board since 1997.
The Board of Directors itself has expanded recently, adding several new members, including Barbara Cavalier, Gloria Crudgington and Traci French of Monrovia, Jay Coleman and Chris Mead of Arcadia, Alexis Newell of Pasadena and Mike Thompson of Redondo Beach.
Santa Anita Family Service celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year, serving communities in the San Gabriel Valley since 1951 with a wide range of mental health and social services, including senior assistance and case management, family preservation programs, drug and alcohol treatment, domestic violence intervention and child abuse therapy.
Each year, the organization’s offices in Monrovia, San Gabriel, Covina and Pomona provide low-cost service to thousands of individuals and families from communities throughout the region.
Additionally, through its affiliations with colleges and universities, Santa Anita Family Service is a training ground for graduate students in psychology and counseling disciplines, and has helped educate hundreds of this region’s mental health and social service professionals.
