Prayer Breakfast supports the Y’s Chaplain Services. Joyce is a member who was helped by Chaplain Services. “I had been meaning to seek counseling after a traumatic couple years in my life so I was very glad to learn that the Y offers chaplain services right on the premises. The sessions with Chaplain Lucinda helped me to process lingering grief and shock and were instrumental in helping me get well again emotionally. I would encourage other members to take advantage of such a wonderful resource!”
Thank you to everyone who joined our Annual Community Prayer Breakfast. Over 300 people joined to hear our keynote speaker Dave Gallagher, Associate Director for Strategic Integration overseeing Strategy, Technology and Formulation for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The event raised money toward our Chaplain Services Initiative, which provides non-denominational spiritual support to the community.
Gallagher joined JPL in 1989 and in the years since has led the launch, build, and operations of the $700 million Spitzer Space Telescope; led the team that built and tested the Wide Field and Planetary Camera-II, which fixed the Hubble Space Telescope; and has overseen a portfolio comprised of over 20 programs, project implementation teams, and ongoing domestic and international scientific mission operations projects (including Voyagers I and II.)
Gallagher and his wife Kathy have raised three children and live in Glendale, California. Together they share a heart for the poor and marginalized as well for young families. As longstanding supporters of Young Life in the Verdugo Foothills, Dave has served on its board as well as leading a youth group at the local church. Dave also served on the board of Elizabeth House, a homeless shelter for pregnant women in crisis.
