MINNEAPOLIS & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nexus, a leading provider of solutions for youth and family struggling
with emotional and behavioral issues, has named Kimberly Ann Luckey as
its Director of Development for Illinois.

Luckey was selected after a nationwide search and brings a wealth of
experience in fundraising for youth mental health providers. She will
lead fundraising efforts for Nexus’ Illinois sites, which include:
Indian Oaks Academy in Manteno, Ill., and Onarga Academy in Onarga, Ill.
The two sites serve boys and girls from Chicago, greater Illinois, and
from throughout the nation, who struggle with emotional and behavioral
issues.

“I believe in the power of youth, and I know that the services Indian
Oaks and Onarga Academies provide can help kids and families find a
brighter future,” Luckey said.

Luckey will work with individuals, foundations and corporations to raise
funds that support new programming, enhance the sites’ physical plants,
and provide extras that kids in treatment don’t receive through
government funding, such as prom rentals, Christmas gifts, and art and
activities.

“We’re pleased to welcome Luckey to our development team,” said Jack
Ewing, Nexus Vice President of Business Development. “Her enthusiasm and
knowledge of the youth mental health industry is a great asset for
Nexus.”

programming, and LGBTQ youth support and networking programs. The site
serves boys and girls, ages 12-21, and their families.
