We are guided by a volunteer Board of Directors. Board members give generously of their time, talent, and expertise.

Many have been involved with the Center for more than a decade. These committed men and women came to us by many paths – their churches, Gonzaga College High School, their community or business relationships, and their other volunteer affiliations, such as Compass who has provided pro-bono services.
