Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County – Plymouth, WI
The Family Resource Center (FRC), an innovative non-profit in Sheboygan County, is looking for a dynamic Executive Director to drive community partnerships, nurture teamwork in a positive workplace, and lead the organization to realize a shared vision for growth and success. This person will build on current organizational strengths, and will partner with the Board of Directors and the FRC Associate Director to build community support and funding. This Executive Director must have the desire and skills to grow programs and revenue streams, while remaining true to our mission of building strong families and strong communities.
The Executive Director is responsible for the leadership and management of the FRC, including financial and personnel management, marketing, community outreach, fund development, and oversight of program development and project implementation. This highly visible position will require the Executive Director to maintain and grow partnerships within the community and to be the primary public spokesperson for the organization.
Programs : FRC is recognized as a leader in the county for our expertise on early child development (birth through three years old). The FRC provides two main services: (1) education of first-time parents, utilizing the Parents as Teachers home visitation model, in addition to a child development screening program, and parenting classes. (2) The FRC also provides comprehensive literacy services to adults with low literacy or for ESL through our Literacy Council program.
Trajectory and Team: The FRC is poised for strong growth in its two programs, Literacy Council (LC), and Parents as Teachers (PAT). PAT served over 100 families in 2016, while piloting a child development screening program in the Plymouth school district in partnership with the United Way. As part of the Welcome Baby coalition, the FRC helped launch a program where all new parents at local Sheboygan hospitals receive materials and direct contact on child development and parenting resources. Literacy Council is also positioned to increase services and visibility, with a recent uptick in funding and volunteers. FRC’s staff are highly skilled, with a high degree of professionalism and passion.
