Community Connections: Pat Dale

Welcome to Community Connections. This week it is my pleasure to introduce you to Pat Dale! Pat is the CEO of Headway Emotional Health Services. Headway is a collective of experienced emotional and mental health care professionals providing outpatient therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), case management services, divorce education, in-school therapy and more throughout the Twin Cities, including Richfield, Golden Valley, Brooklyn Center and Hopkins. Pat has worked for Headway, formerly Storefront Group & Storefront Youth Action, for nearly 30 years and has been the CEO position since 2001. The first thing Pat does when he gets to the office is to say hello to his team members and greet the four-legged friends that have come with for the day.

In addition to running Headway, Pat is currently the President of the Richfield Optimist Club, treasurer of the Richfield Rotary Club and has been a member of the Golden Valley Little League Board of Directors- a position he has held for the last 14 years! Pat was born in Richfield, grew up in Edina and settled in Golden Valley with his wife and their 3 children. Pat truly enjoys volunteering his time and being involved in the communities he lives and works in.

When he is not busy moving community organizations forward, Pat enjoys traveling. His last vacation was to visit his son, who was studying abroad, in Denmark. In November, he is going to travel to Antigua; a gift from his brother, who won the trip from the LIVE with Kelly and Ryan show. We are excited to have Pat as an active Chamber member. Make sure to say hello when you see him around town, chances are he is there volunteering with a community organization!
