Family Resource Center adds new positions amid expansion

SIDNEY — The Family Resource Center (FRC) has undergone significant growth in the last 12 months. The addition of Shelby County Counseling Center and the ongoing transition of Century Health have brought adult and recovery services to the agency. In the midst of the many challenges facing behavioral health providers, FRC has increased both number of clients served and types of services provided. In response to this expansion, a number of changes have been made

Ginny Williams will step into the role of chief clinical officer for the entire agency. She will oversee clinical services for FRC sites. Williams joined the agency one year ago at the Century Health site as the chief clinical officer. She immediately began to assess and improve practice standards and clinical training there. She has spent the past year implementing evidence-based programming and treatment modalities with the Century Health staff in Findlay. In her new role, Williams will begin to implement these changes agency-wide.

Laura Brickner is transitioning from chief of staff to the role of chief operating officer. Brickner will continue to work from the Lima office and will oversee facilities, front desk operations, accreditation, and compliance for all sites. She will also share oversite of information technology and billing with Kelly Webster, director of finance.

The agency has created a position to assess and provide training and oversee agency compliance. Cindi Orley will assume the director of compliance and training role. She will work with all FRC sites to create and provide ongoing training to all staff while maintaining oversight of the criminal justice team.

The Family Resource Center has offices in Findlay, Kenton, Lima, Sidney and St. Marys. The agency provides both prevention and clinical services to the communities it serves. Contact Rachel Walter, director of community engagement, for more information.
