What brought this staff member to ARE

I was asked to join the Board by one of the Board members that was friend of mine, to specifically review the documentation that was being entered by the case managers. I had been raising money through a separate non-profit that a group of my friends and I formed to bring money and awareness to the community back in the early 80’s. I became involved in HIV programming back before they had a name for the disease. I had lost multiple friends and decided that it was time to dedicate a greater part of myself to the cause.

What brought this staff member to ARE

I came to ARE in the 90s because, like a lot of others, I had lost so many friends to the disease and I wanted to help. Since then, there has been less death and more friends actually living healthy lives with HIV.  For that I am grateful.

What brought this staff member to ARE

What brought you to ARE?

My career as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker has led me in many directions before landing here at ARE, Inc. While in graduate school I worked in California with Native American children in foster care and in a child and family counseling center. After I returned to VA, I provided home-based counseling for families in NOVA and Washington, D.C.. I managed a program for dually-diagnosed veterans in Maryland for a year, which then led me to provide family counseling on contract to active military families, both domestically and abroad for the last 5 and 1/2 years. Although the travel was enjoyable, I was delighted to find an opportunity to work with a well-established organization locally serving a population truly in need. I joined ARE in December 2015 as the Clinical Supervisor. I am honored to become a part of this dedicated team, and am excited to put my enthusiasm for holistic health into play with clientele.

Email: cramey@valleyhealthlink.com

What brought this staff member to ARE

What brought him to ARE: What attracted me to ARE was the chance to create a (transportation) program from scratch and see how it works within the organization.  I relished the idea of being able to use my 36+ years of customer service skills and 20+ years of non-profit management experience to benefit ARE and the greater HIV community.
