Family Nurturing Center of MA (FNC) is seeking a passionate, mission-driven Executive Director to raise the organization’s visibility, develop its vision, deepen its impact, and shepherd the organization through its next phase of growth.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Family Nurturing Center was founded in 1994 by Sharon Shay Workman, PhD with the goals of reducing child maltreatment and abuse and promoting healthy families and communities. Since that time, FNC has grown and evolved to become a highly-regarded community-based family service provider and a nationally recognized training center.
FNC provides training, mentoring, and program development consultation services to more than 1,000 professionals throughout Massachusetts each year. As part of the National Nurturing Network coordinated by Family Development Resources, Inc., FNC has played key leadership roles in nationally funded projects that promote healthy families. FNC has led both government and privately funded local initiatives involving direct services that have served as pilot programs replicated elsewhere.
Family Nurturing Center offers free nurturing and family engagement programs for families in low-income Boston neighborhoods that help parents and caregivers improve their parenting skills and enhance the cognitive and social development of their children. FNC has staff capacity to offer resources in English, Spanish, Cape Verdean Creole, Haitian Creole, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and Portuguese. FNC also fosters parent leaders and offers paid parent leadership opportunities. FNC’s training and programming have benefited from long term consistent support from state agencies including the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care and the Department of Children and Families, and many foundations. These programs help to strengthen families, build community and family networks, and provide children with the nurturing and engaging environments necessary to ensure school readiness, resilience, and long-term success. Each year FNC partners with over 1,500 families. FNC also works with other nonprofits to build their capacity and opportunities to offer these programs and services across all of Boston’s most underserved neighborhoods.
