Chris Mann has recently been added to the Together Center's Board of Directors.

Mann, a Renton resident, is a commercial banking officer at Columbia Bank's Bellevue office, where he has worked for the past seven years. He is a participant in the 2012-14 class of Leadership Eastside, for which he also serves on the finance committee. Mann began volunteering on the Together Center's finance and property operations committee several months ago and was elected to the board this month.

"When we were scouting for additional financial experience for our committee, Chris came highly recommended to us from people we respect," said board chair Hank Myers. "He has a keen interest in how to make an impact to improve the Eastside and we feel very lucky to have him on our team."

One of the first nonprofit multi-tenant centers in the nation, Together Center was designed first and foremost to lower barriers to finding help. Where east King County residents once needed to travel from Bothell to Renton or beyond to find help at individual locations, people from throughout the Eastside, now find comprehensive assistance at one location in downtown Redmond.

Services include shelter, medical and dental care, child care assistance, youth and family counseling and more. Tens of thousands of people were assisted on campus last year.

Together Center is located at 16225 NE 87th in Redmond. For more information, contact (425) 869-6699 or visit www.togethercenter.org.
