Together Center in Redmond has announced the addition of Bruce Follansbee of Sammamish to its board of directors.

Follansbee is a director at Expense Reduction Analysts, where he works with clients in finding savings and best practice improvements in their non-core, overhead expenses. He has been involved in Together Center’s fundraising event, Together Strong, for the last two years.

“We are very lucky to have Bruce on our board of directors,” said board chair Margaret Moore. “He has extensive expertise in running efficient organizations. Importantly for us, he is a great ambassador who is able to help us grow and increase our impact in the community.”

One of the first nonprofit multi-tenant centers in the nation, Together Center was designed to lower barriers to finding help. Where East King County residents once needed to travel from Bothell to Renton or beyond to find help at individual locations, people from throughout the Eastside now find comprehensive assistance at one location in downtown Redmond.

Services include medical and dental care, youth shelter, child care assistance, youth and family counseling and more. Tens of thousands of people are assisted on campus each year.
