Tied to Guest House’s bold moves to consolidate its U.S. Operations in the State of Michigan, and build new and upgraded treatment facilities in Lake Orion, MI, Guest House is restructuring its fund raising operations and preparing for a national fund raising campaign to fund construction and innovation.

All ongoing fund raising operations at Guest House will now be led by Erika H. Walker of Rochester Hills, MI formerly Director of Major and Planned Gifts at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation at the Detroit Medical Center.

Erika Walker is a senior-level fundraising executive with 16 years of non-profit experience managing capital campaigns, major and planned gifts, annual giving, grant development, donor communications, volunteer management, strategic planning, prospect management/strategy, stewardship, conference/event planning, and leadership of teams. She is experienced in the use of Talisma, the identical donor database in use at Guest House.

Former VP of Advancement and Outreach, Richard Kramer, is moving to the role of Senior Campaign Advisor within the Development Department to focus 100% of his attention on the upcoming ten million dollar “Vision 20/20” Capital Campaign which will supplement the three to four million dollars of annual fundraising achieved annually at Guest House in support of its clinical operations.

Please welcome Erika Walker to her new leadership role at Guest House.
