Mary Jo DeGrandi, M.S.
Director of Outreach & Marketing
PRN for Families

It is with great pleasure that PRN for Families announces the appointment of Tim Anglum to the position of Admissions Director. Tim comes to PRN after successful careers in finance and in non-profit development. He is currently a master’s candidate in mental health counseling at Northwestern University. Tim is an experienced volunteer in crisis and domestic violence advocacy, and is passionate about finding ways to creatively support families in times of need. Of his desire to work directly with families in need of resources, Tim states, “In my professional work, I am guided by the intention first and always to listen; to seek the broadest understanding of both need and opportunity, and then with patience, persistence, respect and flexibility help to establish and deepen the relationships that will contribute to the most beneficial outcomes.” Tim’s previous work in non-profit development at Bennington College solidified his decision to dive into the world of counseling, as his deepest satisfaction came from working with students and their families.

Tim’s skill and thoughtfulness in building relationships ultimately led him to PRN for Families. “We are so pleased to welcome Tim to the PRN for Families team,” said Charles Elias, Executive and Clinical Director of PRN for Families. “He brings a wealth of experience and a broad range of skills, as well as a warm and genuine approach, that we believe will help him to foster the development of the most transparent and supportive connections between families and our program, and ultimately to set the tone for how we treat families in our care.”

Tim will work closely with Mary Jo DeGrandi, Director of Outreach and Marketing, as well as with Charles and the rest of the PRN for Families team, as he begins to meet and develop relationships with referring professionals. Tim is based on the east coast and can be reached at or on his cell at 802-491-9169. When not helping families plan their best next steps he can be found exploring the trails of Vermont where he lives with his wife and three teenage children.
