Riverside Community Care

Scott M. Bock, Founder and CEO

“Needham Bank has always been that unique bank that is truly committed to the local community. They work with customers to understand their needs and help them succeed at whatever they’re trying to do. It really does feel like a different kind of bank.” – Scott M. Bock

Scott M. Bock, Founder and CEO of Riverside Community Care, began his non-profit in 1990 with the mission to use behavioral healthcare and human services to improve access to quality care. He’s seen Riverside grow from six employees working out of a single location to more than 1,700 employees working at 100 sites around Massachusetts. And while Riverside remains committed to locally-based care, its growth has allowed the organization to branch out to provide digital learning platforms—now serving over 3,000 schools and colleges, and over 3 million people across the globe.

As Riverside expanded, Scott quickly realized how important it was to have a banking partner that truly wants to see the organization succeed. Over 10 years later, he notes that Needham Bank continues to be a steadfast supporter of what Riverside Community Care is doing for the world.

Bock values the dedication that Needham Bank leadership has to supporting non-profits in the community. This is something he’s not only seen under Joe Campanelli, President and CEO, but a commitment he’s experienced since the beginning of Riverside’s relationship with us, when Mark Whalen was CEO.

Scott shares that our generous annual charitable contribution allows for innovation, rich advocacy efforts, and the highest quality care for the people who depend on Riverside Community Care. And in order to continue expanding Riverside’s impact, Scott looks forward to maintaining his meaningful partnership with Needham Bank
