Cope Family Center Welcomes Hardy and Mitchell to Board

Napa CA – Cope Family Center has elected Susan Mitchell and Lona Hardy to its Board of Directors.


Longtime Cope volunteer Susan Mitchell is the Facilities Director at Opus One.  Her drive to improve the lives of the children of Napa also led her to commitments as a board member and active volunteer at several Napa schools.  Mitchell described herself as “excited to join the Cope board and take on the fundraising that sustains Cope programming.” She added, “The many services that Cope offers all families in Napa County fulfill essential needs and support for parents and children.”


Lona Hardy has a psychotherapy practice and has worked with families in that capacity for more than thirty years. Her extensive professional background in family counseling has inspired her philanthropic work, and Hardy noted that she is “particularly interested in the parent education and support programs.”

Judy Myers, Cope Board President, commented, “Both Susan and Lona have demonstrated a deep engagement with Napa’s families, and their practical experience and true sense of Cope’s mission makes them wonderful sources of both knowledge and enthusiasm on the Board.  I was delighted to introduce them, and the entire Board is eager to get to work.”
