Jerry Landers, Chief Executive Officer of Aspire Indiana Health and Chief Strategy Officer of Aspire Indiana, has been named to the board of directors of Fire Rescue House of Madison County.

The nonprofit group, also known as the Madison County Firefighters Foundation, assists people who have been displaced or suffered trauma as a result of domestic house fires, natural disasters or other personal difficulties. 

Their services include temporary housing, assistance and inspiration in a safe and supportive environment as they work to rebuild their lives. The group currently operates two rescue houses in Anderson.

“I’m proud to join the board of a group that has been doing tremendous good works in Madison County,” Landers said. “Fire Rescue House provides a haven to people who have experienced fires or other trauma. It is a beacon of hope to those who find themselves in need of help.”

Landers has a long career in providing residential services to those in need, including homeless populations. He served as vice president of finance and business development for the former Center for Mental Health before it merged with BehaviorCorp to form Aspire Indiana in 2009. In 2015 Landers led the launch of Aspire Indiana Health, which now includes eight Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), transforming the organization into a true “whole health” provider.
