The Highlands Community Services Board of Directors has chosen Rebecca Holmes to be their new executive director beginning June 1.
Holmes succeeds Jeff Fox, who has held his position for 13 years, and retired this month.
“I believe, without question, that Rebecca is the best choice the Board could have made to ensure the continued success of HCS,” Fox said in a press release. “Rebecca brings years of experience to the position along with a keen understanding of all the programs within the agency.”
Holmes has 20 years of experience providing inpatient, outpatient and home-based services for families dealing with the impact of addiction, trauma or mental health challenges. She is licensed as a professional counselor and substance abuse counselor and has served as clinical director with Highlands Community Service since 2013.
“I look forward to serving our community alongside and on behalf of the dedicated staff and service providers at HCS,” said Holmes.
Highlands Community Services provides services dealing with mental health, substance abuse and other developmental issues to the residents of Washington County and Bristol, Virginia, every year. To learn more, call 276-525-1550 or visit www.highlandscsb.org.
