Executive Director Joe Yancey

Yancey shares experiences with St. Louis On the Air

Do you know what Joe Yancey’s first role was at Places for People?

Yancey discussed his 40+ years in the behavioral health field – from his start on the PFP Maintenance crew to his retirement as CEO – and the changes he saw in that time with Sarah Fenske on St. Louis on the Air on St. Louis Public Radio.

“I saw a real parallel between what I had spent the formative part of my years, which really was around the Civil Rights movement and this work,” Yancey said of one of the inspirations to enter into a career in the behavioral health field.
