Brandon McInerney, Program Supervisor at our Boarding Home on Euclid Ave., has done an outstanding job with his career here at Elmcrest. Brandon started at Elmcrest over 10 years ago and has been a Program Supervisor for 7 years. Brandon has made positive, impactful, life changing relationships with all the youth he works with. He teaches youth life skills specifically focusing on education, employment, and social skills with a goal that all youth will successfully live independently when they leave care. Brandon is also a effective trainer in TCI, CPR, and Boys Town. Brandon has lead the Fostering Youth Success Alliance committee since 2015. He encourages and supports youth to participate in the yearly Youth Advocacy Day which is the day youth have the opportunity to speak with assemblymen and women about the crucial benefits and need of aid for youth in the foster care system who are attending college. He also has set up and supported taking youth to meet and speak with local assembly men and women as well as local county representatives. We received a grant ( 2017-2018)  to further advocate for our youth. I can’t thank Brandon enough for all he has done and continues to do for our agency, staff, families, and youth.
