Dr. James G. Schiller has been appointed executive director of St. Christopher’s Inn at Graymoor in Garrison.
The July 30 announcement was jointly made by St. Christopher’s Inn and the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. St. Christopher’s is a sponsored ministry of the friars.
Dr. Schiller joins St. Christopher’s Inn after 25 years at Argus Community Inc., a nonprofit organization in the Bronx that provides drug treatment programs and case management services for disadvantaged teens and adults. He holds a doctorate in clinical psychology from Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, Calif.
“Dr. Schiller has worked throughout his career to bring healing and hope to those with nowhere else to turn,” said Father Brian Terry, S.A., minister general of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement.
“We are thrilled to have him lead our team at St. Christopher’s Inn, where we minister to men in crisis.”
Dr. Schiller said he was “excited” for the opportunity to lead the dedicated team at St. Christopher’s Inn in providing the men they serve with shelter, substance abuse treatment and health care.
