As we close Hillside’s 185th year of service, I couldn’t be more proud of our history—and I’m equally excited about our future. There’s so much happening at our agency, and I’m pleased to announce a new podcast that will offer a regular glimpse into our people, our work, and our impact.

Each month, Conversations with the CEO will showcase the unique perspectives of our staff, community partners and the youth and families we serve. You’ll find a dedicated link to the podcast at the top of this page.

The conversations have already been fascinating. For our inaugural episode, I was honored to be joined by members of our Board of Governors for a look back at Hillside’s founding in 1837, and the many ways in which our mission and commitment have evolved since then. Next, I talked with two long-serving Hillside employees about how they’re living our values in their everyday work.

Future episodes will explore different aspects of the Hillside community—and as you’re an important part of that community, I hope you’ll check in each month and join the conversation.

On behalf of all of us at Hillside—from our family to yours—please accept my best wishes for a safe, healthy and joyous holiday season. Thank you as always for your shared commitment to our mission: your support keeps Hillside Strong, every day!

See you in 2023,

Maria Cristalli
President and CEO
