Faces of Ädelbrook

Solomon Leonard

Employee of the Quarter

Solomon Leonard has been with Ädelbrook since 2016. He recently moved from our residential programming to the East Hartford Learning Center where he is a social worker. His clinical skills have set him apart and he immediately made a powerful impact with the students. He is relatable, funny and engaged. However, it’s more than just that, he goes above and beyond for the students without hesitation. He shows how them with deeds how much he cares by bringing in clothing, hygiene supplies and sneakers for the students who are in need. When he found out one of the students wasn’t going to be having a Thanksgiving meal, he delivered a hot meal to their home. Solomon is a true role model for students and staff alike, we are lucky to have him here at Ädelbrook.


Student, TLC—Cromwell

Mihaela is a student at the Transitional Academy II. Since her sophomore year she’s been a student at The Learning Center in Cromwell. One thing she is most looking forward to is working in Ädelbrook’s Bark-ery. Mihaela is one of the most positive people you’ll have the pleasure to meet. Whenever you greet her she is quick to tell you how well she’s doing and the next great thing she’s looking forward to. She hopes to be an advocate for others with autism and anxiety disorders.

Jeff King

Volunteer Staff

Jeff King, Senior Hydrogeologist and Regional Manager at GeoInsight, Inc., has been a volunteer with Ädelbrook since he golfed in our 2015 Golf for Kids Tournament. Jeff’s son is on the spectrum and he saw the great work that was being done for individuals with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, and wanted to help. He has been an incredible member of both our Golf for Kids and Cheers for Ädelbrook fundraising committees. He is always eager to help, cheerful and full of great ideas. GeoInsight, Inc. has been supportive of him in this endeavor as well and they have helped with sponsorships and creating large poster board signs at their facility for our events. Jeff lives in Southington with his wife Deb and their son JJ. Make sure you say hi to Jeff when you see him at our next event.

David Maibaum

Executive Team Member

David Maibaum, Chief Financial Officer, has been working for this agency for 30 years. He came on board in 1988 when it was still the Children’s Home of Cromwell when there were less than 50 staff, we are now almost 600. He has seen the agency grow from our one Cromwell location to over 20 different sites throughout the state. He has witnessed buildings come down, and others go up. Dave has been a steadfast leader at the helm of Ädelbrook and in recognition of his efforts there was a Bradford Pear Tree planted on campus, a tradition at Ädelbrook, to recognize extraordinary length of service. Additionally he received a 30 year length of service award at the Employee Recognition Ceremony.
