Terry Hanson

Special Projects Coordinator

I’m the central contact person for families with children who have mental healthcare needs.  I’m here to help link youth and families to the right mental health providers and services in Scott County. If you’re not sure where to start, I’m the right person to talk to. I also coordinate Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) and The Lisa Project.
