The Crisis Center has been a wonderful professional experience for me these past five years and I’m proud of the profoundly good work we’ve accomplished together. In the coming weeks however, I will be leaving the Crisis Center to take on a new professional challenge in the community. I will miss the unique talents of this mighty group of staff and volunteers but look forward to continued contact and future work together.

Fortunately, the Crisis Center is finishing this fiscal year in stable condition with a strong fiscal picture. Internal talent continues to seamlessly manage the day-to-day work and the Board is beginning the leadership transition process. Current Board President, Andy Pojman will be leading these transition efforts and he may be contacted via email at, if you have any questions.

I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you personally before I conclude my role at the Crisis Center so please do call me directly if you have questions or concerns.  I can be at 925-939-1916 X107 or

Warm Regards,
Rhonda James, MA, LMFT
Executive Director
Contra Costa Crisis Center
