Austin Evans joined the Los Alamos Family Council board of directors in August 2019 and was elected as Vice President of the board in December 2020.
When asked why he joined the board, Evans replied, “Everyone in our community deserves quality, affordable counseling services and access to the Youth Activity Centers that help build resilient, educated youth in our schools. I’ve wanted to contribute to LAFC’s mission of promoting social and emotional well-being through education, prevention and counseling.”
After joining the board Evans began to contribute through the LANL employee match program. He stated, “I donate to LAFC because affordable access to mental health services is more important than ever. With the challenges 2020 brought us and those still ahead of us in 2021, we must defend LAFC’s role as the sole nonprofit behavioral health provider in Los Alamos County. And while they’ve been shuttered for much of the past year, our two Youth Activity Centers also vitally contribute to the health, vibrancy and opportunities for future generations of our community. Please join me in making a recurring contribution to Los Alamos Family Council and — if you’re a LANL employee — be sure to take advantage of Triad National Security’s match!

Evans is a champion for our organization. Through Evans’ commitment to our organization’s success, he provides a valuable perspective to share with all: “I encourage all generations of those in Los Alamos and throughout Northern New Mexico to seek out the capable, competent and affordable services that LAFC offers. I’ve seen firsthand the impact that LAFC has for our clients, and it’s incredibly rewarding to be a small part of delivering on this important mission.”
