Delaware Guidance Services Names New Executive Director

Delaware Guidance Services is pleased to welcome Jill Rogers, MSN, as its new Executive Director. Jill succeeds current Executive Director Bruce Kelsey, LCSW, who will retire in October after 40 years of service to DGS and Delaware children and families.

Bruce devoted his tenure at DGS to helping Delaware's most vulnerable children and families. On behalf of the Board of Directors, and everyone that has been touched by DGS, we thank Bruce for his dedication to the DGS mission and his tireless work of helping those in need.

Jill brings over 20 years of health and health care leadership in Delaware non-profit and public agencies, serving most recently as Director of the Delaware Division of Developmental Disabilities Services. She has played a key role in many of Delaware's strategic health care initiatives, including innovative approaches to better integrate medical and behavioral health services and to address the cost and quality of health care and related services.

In her own words, Jill describes her leadership as one that focuses on "building relationships, valuing different perspective, seeking out and bringing marginalized voices to complicated issues and building consensus for meaningful and lasting change."

Delaware Guidance Services' mission is to provide quality therapeutic services to Delaware children, youth and their families to increase social, emotional and behavioral wellness. With approximately 200 employees, DGS has been one of Delaware's Top Work Places for the last 4 consecutive years.

Fund for Women Grant

We're grateful for a recent $5,000 grant from Fund for Women at the Delaware Community Foundation which will be used to support group Dialectical Behavior Therapy for at-risk girls and young women. This highly effective cognitive and behavioral therapy teaches mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance.
