We are seeking a Board composition that reflects the cultural diversity of our community and represents the populations we serve.

In addition, we are currently seeking members with financial background that would be willing to sit on the Finance and Audit committee as well as the Board of Directors. Please submit your resume on or before April 19, 2022.
The Board of Directors provides governance oversight and leadership of the operations and performance of the organization, based on the strategic plan. This is a voluntary position with a time commitment of approximately 5-7 hours per month.

FACS Board members play an important advocacy role on behalf of our region and are called upon to develop policies and make decisions that serve the best interests of the children and families in our community. In addition to lived experience we are looking for diverse perspectives and skills that support an ever changing environment focused on creating transparency and accountability.
