Executive Director, Aspire Indiana Health, Inc.
Jerry Landers thought he was simply going to work as a part-time night-shift residential coach in the summer of 1993. But once he got involved in the challenging and gratifying work of the mental health organization and started helping residential patients with their mental illnesses, he signed on for a full-time job.
Dr. Landers earned his doctorate degree in Business Administration from Columbia Southern University and he holds a Master of Science degree, in addition to a Master of Business Administration degree and he is a certified occupancy specialist for HUD. As a self proclaimed “Lifelong Learner”, he continues to seek out new learning opportunities whenever possible. For nearly a decade, he worked in residential programs in various roles, which was invaluable when he was given the opportunity to develop and lead the Center for Mental Health’s Gradual Reintegration Program, which provides residential-style services in a community setting. Later, he served as manager of the Center’s Elwood and Noblesville offices and began managing business development functions of the organization. Landers implemented the Center’s HIV program, which is now, geographically, the largest HIV program in the state of Indiana. He also championed the expansion of behavioral health services in Elwood, including the construction of a larger facility.
Over time, Landers directed the Center’s expansion into Hamilton County. For three years prior to the Center for Mental Health’s merger with BehaviorCorp in 2009, Landers served as the Center’s vice-president of finance and business development. After the merger, which resulted in a new company name, he continued as Aspire Indiana’s Chief Development Officer.
Landers has spent the majority of his professional career working with and developing programs that serve the needs of the homeless population. Landers has helped develop Shelter Plus Care services for the seriously mentally ill, Emergency Solutions Grant services for the homeless, has a long running “Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness” (PATH) program, helps support Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) services, and championed the expansion of the Support Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program. Landers also serves as a SAMHSA Peer Reviewer for Housing, HIV and Integrated Care grant applications.
As the Executive Director for Aspire Indiana Health, Inc, Landers’ focus is now on the integration of behavioral and primary health care into one unified process which can best be summarized as a "No Wrong Door” approach. Under Landers' direction, Aspire Indiana Health was launched in 2015 with sites in Anderson, Elwood, Carmel, Noblesville, Lebanon and Indianapolis and served over 1,000 clients in its first year. Aspire Indiana Health has now been certified as a Federally Qualified Health Center in all the above-mentioned locations with a goal of seeing 20,000 annual patients by the year 2020.
Landers and his wife, Rachel, live in Anderson. Together they have three children and are active in their community.
