According to Scott DeLong, President of Champaign Residential Services, Inc., Dave Faulkner of Urbana has joined CRSI as Program Development Administrator.
Faulkner, a Champaign Co. native and career army officer, is a graduate of Graham High School, The Ohio State University, Cornell University and Framingham State University. He served as Champaign Co. Economic Director from 1997 to 2008 and was most recently employed by TAC Enterprises in Springfield, a provider of employment and habilitation services for individuals with developmental or physical disabilities.
Faulkner is assigned the leadership and responsibility to continue, develop and grow CRSI’s Adult Day Services programs; providing expanded and meaningful opportunities for individuals served by CRSI across its thirty-county service area. The agency first began providing Adult Day Services in Champaign County in 2006. It currently has additional programs in Hancock and Preble Counties.
“We see his experience with TAC Enterprises as a terrific opportunity for Dave to help CRSI meet its goals and expand the program into other counties”, says DeLong. “We have numerous county board requests to develop and deliver ADS programs in their counties which parallel the agency’s plans for the future direction of CRSI.”
