Eric Copeland Joins Rose Park Neighborhood Association Board

Meet Eric: Eric was born on the Island of Cyprus into a family of educators, farmers and ministers. He moved with his family to a University town in Kansas and then moved to California where he has lived since he was 12. He’s the youngest of 4 boys and spent all his youth playing as many sports as he could which eventually helped him get scholarships to attend College.

After a short time working in adventure education in Romania, he moved back to Southern California and worked in special education and then homeless services for about 10 years. He has a masters degree in social work from CSULB and is a licensed clinical therapist, currently working part time.

He is married to Kaney and has 2 children age 8 and 6 and has resided in Rose Park since 2016.

As a board member of We Love Long Beach, he’s been passionate about organizing social gatherings in local neighborhoods throughout Long Beach. Within his own neighborhood, he has hosted breakfasts, a block party and worked with local artist Cody Lusby to launch the Roses For Rose Park mural project.

After a brief relocation to New Zealand with his family, he is looking forward to being an active member of Rose Park again. His specific interests include mobilizing neighbors to host gatherings and block parties. He believes these events are an on-ramp to finding out what specific skills and talents are represented on each block.
