Glen McClughan – Executive Director/CEO

Glen has been part of the SACL family since the 190’0s and has ascended to the position of Executive Director/CEO. Under his leadership, SCACL has become more entrepreneurial; acquiring properties, developing the Midtown facility (which has 4 SCACL suites), owning shares in Persephone Brewing and partnering with Persephone Brewing through Persephone Farms Ltd.  In addition to his vision for the organization, Glen has strong relations with the people we serve and a solid philosophical foundation to the work we do from his formative time in the L’Arche community.

Nancy Brindley – President

Nancy joined the Board in 2012. She developed an interest in serving people with developmental disabilities as a teenager through her involvement with an adult named Doreen. For many years, she joined our family for holidays and weekends. Having spent over 30 years in education, she had the opportunity to work with individuals with a variety of special needs. Along with her husband she became involved with SCACL in the late 90’s when he decided to volunteer for the organization and became a good friend with one of the individuals served. Nancy also coached Special Olympics bowling for a year. Her passion is people and building healthy communities. In the context of SCACL, Nancy’s goal is to support Glen, the Executive Director in creating a vibrant, happy and safe community for staff and persons served such that they “look forward to what the next day will bring”.

Dr. Susan Blockberger has been a member of SCACL’s Board of Directors since January, 2017. She is a retired speech-language pathologist, having worked for almost forty years with nonspeaking individuals who use alternative communication systems. She believes passionately in the rights of every individual to have their voices heard, and to have a good quality of life including access to life-long learning opportunities.

She joined the board in the hopes that she could contribute and support SCACL in their mission to provide opportunities for full citizenship for individuals with developmental disabilities. Since June, 2017 Susan has served as vice-president of the Board of Directors.
