Staff Spotlight

Allen Davis
Certification Specialist

I have grown to appreciate and respect the high level of professionalism that is expected of staff from the top down and the incredible support that exists in this agency even when one makes a mistake. I truly appreciate the attitude of “do better next time” and the room for personal and professional growth that we have at Aldea.

About the Event
Each year, more than 100 community volunteers along with Aldea friends, staff and their friends and family graciously volunteer their time to help the Music Festival raise millions of dollars for mental health research— to date, contributors to IMHRO have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars for research, changed thousands of lives, and funded stunning discoveries for better therapies now and tomorrow! Aldea coordinates the volunteer efforts because of the close relationship with the Staglin family and our mutual interest in mental health.
