Spotlight: Todd Louden, Board Member, The Villages of Indiana

Todd Louden, a board member for six years at The Villages of Indiana, got involved with the organization at the request of his high school friend, Matt Breman, who was President of the Board for Prevent Child Abuse Indiana (PCAI) before PCAI became a Division of The Villages. After Breman’s unfortunate and very untimely death, Louden shared he wanted to honor Matt’s legacy with the current chair of the PCAI Advisory Committee and Breman’s late wife, Rhonda Breman, and she suggested that he take on her current leadership role – as she was joining The Villages Board as the PCAI Advisory Committee Chair.

Louden is passionate about ensuring, “that no child has to grow up under abuse and neglect.”

Number of years serving as a board member at The Villages: six years

Occupation: Head of Global Support for Customer Portal and Digital Marketing Apps, Roche Diagnostics

In addition to serving as a board member, what are your volunteer roles with the organization? I chair the advisory committee for PCAI and serve on The Villages’ executive committee.

What has been your most rewarding experience serving as a board member for The Villages? The most rewarding experience is working with such passionate people at PCAI and The Villages, knowing that everything they do touches the lives of so many in our community.  The need is great and the talented staff meet it head-on every day.  Just being around that spirit makes me positive that this organization is positioned to help serve Indiana’s children well into the future.

What keeps you passionate about serving at The Villages? Being a survivor of child sexual abuse, my passion is driven internally to ensure that no child has to grow up under abuse and neglect.  PCAI and The Villages allows to me to work with people just as passionate and dedicated to the cause.

One thing I’d like for people to know about The Villages is… The staff of PCAI and The Villages are the most dedicated group of people I have ever had a chance to work with.  The passion that comes down from the CEO, Sharon, is shared by everyone.  But they can’t do it alone.  They need the help of foster families, volunteers and donors to ensure that the good work they do can continues.
