FJC launches Executive Director search
A message from Advisory Board Chair, Devorah Levine:
Dear FJC Partner,
We are writing today to inform you of exciting new developments at the West Contra Costa Family Justice Center (FJC). Over the past five years, the FJC has grown from an idea shared by community leaders into a dynamic partnership. As the FJC prepares to enter a new phase of development, the West Contra Costa Family Justice Center Advisory Board and Project Director are pleased to announce that we will begin the search for an Executive Director. The Executive Director will be responsible for leading this diverse coalition of public, private, and community based organizations addressing interpersonal and family violence in Contra Costa County.
The Advisory Board is grateful for Melissa Caine-Huckabay’s extraordinary leadership during this formative time. Melissa will remain as Project Director to support a smooth transition in the coming months.
The FJC partnership has charted new territory in Contra Costa providing integrated, multi-agency, multi-disciplinary services for victims of family and interpersonal violence in a single location. Building on the momentum and good work at an interim location, the FJC recently broke ground on a new permanent facility at 256 24th Street. The 24th Street building will provide a permanent home for the FJC and will triple the number of services available on-site and strengthen partnerships supporting victims of family violence and abuse and their family members in West Contra Costa.
The search for an Executive Director will begin in December with applications due by January 10th. To learn more about the search, click here or contact the FJC at (510) 965-4949.
Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support.
Chair, West Contra Costa Family Justice Center
