It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Gale Metcalf, one of the founders of the Community Services Center. Gale and her husband Joel Wallach were the Center’s first Co-directors from 1988 to 1995.

Here is a recent story that Joel shared with us about Gale’s universal kindness. “Last week, she was visited by a lovely older gentleman who volunteered with the refugee preschool. He is suffering from prostate cancer and has been unable to climb stairs to be with the children. Gale asked him what was his fondest wish. He replied, “to have another chance to be with the children”. Even in the midst of chemo treatment, Gale mobilized systems to transport him to the school and meet with the children who gave him Valentine’s Day cards and hugs. This was so Gale.”

Our heartfelt condolences are being extended to Joel, family and many circles of friends whose lives were touched by Gale’s warmth and kindness.
