Woodbourne Center welcomes Kyle Locke as the nonprofit’s new Development Coordinator. While at Woodbourne, his duties will entail finding financial support for program operations by creating and maintaining relations with donors and foundations.
Prior to his position at Woodbourne Center, Locke served as the Director of Annual Giving at Coppin State University, where he was responsible for raising money for scholarships and student programming. Coppin State introduced Locke to Baltimore, where he received his undergraduate degree courtesy of a basketball scholarship.
“This position was an opportunity to help kids and to gain more development experience,” says Locke. He has experience working for youth when he coached them in basketball for almost a decade. “I’ve always had a passion for helping young people,” he says, “to see them develop and succeed.”
Bill Mojica, Director of Development at Woodbourne Center, agrees. “Kyle is passionate about working with youth and families,” Mojica says. “He has a rich background in the fundraising space and we are very excited to have him join our Woodbourne family.”
Woodbourne Center provides a wide range of psychiatric services for youth with behavioral and emotional issues. The continuum of care includes treatment foster care for boys and girls, from birth-age 21, psychiatric residential treatment for male youth, ages 12-18, and a specialized school. Woodbourne Center, a Nexus Family Member, believes that changing one life changes everything.
