Dear Friends,

1in6 = 19 million male survivors in the US alone.

But did you know that 1in6 = 37?

That’s right, there are 37 people who are committed to those we serve and the delivery of all 1in6 programs. There are 22 paid staff, consultants, and non-paid volunteers, 5 non-paid advisory board members, and 10 non-paid board members.

Each of the 37 people play an important and specific role in our governance and program development and delivery. You can read about all of our exceptional team members on our website, but I’d like to use this letter to introduce our two newest board members, Ned Breslin and Tim Mousseau.

Ned BreslinNed Breslin is currently the Partnership and Programmatic Investment EVP at Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), whose mission is to ensure that all post-9/11 warriors and their families receive all the support they need to thrive and become the most well-adjusted post-conflict generation of veterans in US history.

Prior to joining WWP, Ned spent 28 years working for a series of US and international nonprofits focused on eradicating the global water and sanitation poverty. He was CEO of Water For People from 2009-2015, during which time he won the 2011 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship for his role in reshaping WASH sector programming, funding flows, and monitoring.

Ned’s commitment to 1in6 stems from his personal experiences recovering from childhood sexual abuse, his passion for helping adult survivors find their healing paths, and his belief that greater awareness of this issue is central to its eventual demise.

Ned will assist in furthering our awareness, engagement, and training initiatives.

Tim MousseauTim Mousseau has spent his professional career studying leadership. After earning a Master’s in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University, he has worked to make an impact through speaking and writing on the potential positive connections between leadership, change, and mentoring.

As a current speaker for CAMPUSPEAK, he engages his undergraduate audience, drawing from his research on storytelling and creativity. Through his role as a professional speaker, Tim has addressed audiences at 100 campuses across the country. Currently, Tim also works as the Director of Media at BUHV Designs, in Denver, CO, where he manages the copywriting and content arm of the organization.

Tim began his writing career at the University of New Mexico’s The Daily Lobo while studying Organizational Communication & Journalism. He went on to serve the North American Interfraternity Conference on over 175 campuses; independently write curriculum for numerous organizations; and design three undergraduate classes at The Mentoring Institute.

In his free time, Tim writes for websites and magazines, through which he has reached close to a million readers. Tim is a military child, never having lived anywhere longer than four years. Growing up, he studied the arts.

Tim will assist in furthering our campus awareness and engagement initiative.

I hope that you’ll join me in welcoming Ned and Tim, and that you’ll let me know if there is anything that our team can do for you.

Warm regards,

Steve LePore
