The Missouri Mental Health Foundation (MMHF) Board of Directors elected two individuals with diverse professional experiences to begin three-year board terms.
Clay McGranahan, Jr. is currently the Vice- President of Program Services for the Arc of the Ozarks, a nonprofit agency that provides supports to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) through Medicaid and government contracts. Clay has been active with the I/DD population and services for the last 20 years on a professional level. Clay and his family reside in Rogersville, Missouri and were introduced to the realm of developmental disabilities as the parents of a son with autism and hearing loss. The dedication of this family has paved the way for a successful model for other individuals and families in recognizing and honoring the aspects of the I/DD world.
Andrew Kleiner has been a Columbia Missouri native for over 20 years and has deep roots in the community being a small business owner with Farmers Insurance. He has an extensive background in the arena of entrepreneurship and insurance. Andy is an active member of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce and brings a wide knowledge of business, finance, and communication to the board.
“These two individuals bring an energizing perspective on the area of mental health, developmental disabilities and substance use to the Missouri Mental Health Foundation Board of Directors, and we are looking forward to the work to be done together” said Board Chair, Terry Trafton.
