Growing Opportunities For Local Non Profit
Extended Family of Centre names a new Assistant Director. Due to the expansion and reach of the organization, it is necessary to add an executive position with Daphne Rogers named as Assistant Director. Rogers has served as Communications Director and Program Leader.
Her duties will include continuing to lead programs for children, leading Program Leader Training classes, writing grants, assisting with curriculum development, and assisting Executive Director Laure Clemons with other management tasks.
The need for the addition of an Assistant Director speaks to the overwhelming growth Extended Family has experienced in the last few years. The children’s programs, Extended Family for Kids (EFK) and Extended Leadership Academy (ELA) continue to spread into communities across the state and nation, reaching at-risk children and providing them with skills they need to be successful.
The adult support services, such as the Resource Guide and Helpful Hints pages on the organization’s website, are utilized daily by family members with incarcerated lovednones from all over the country. The newest outreach effort, Extended Success for Life giving support to those who are completing their prison sentences and returning to their homes and communities, is beginning work with men who are “returning citizens” to help them dream, learn, and live.
