TRCUKEE, Calif. — The Family Resource Center of Truckee (FRCoT) has hired Nicole Todd Bailey as their new executive director, starting Jan. 6, 2014.
Bailey brings a wide range of leadership and intercultural experience spanning from the Peace Corps to Apple, Inc. She currently serves as a Board member for Child Family Health International in San Francisco, and has most recently been providing organizational consulting services to corporate and nonprofit clients in the Bay Area. She and her family are in the process of relocating to Truckee.
“I am incredibly honored to take on this leadership role for the Family Resource Center of Truckee and commit my experience and skills to the ongoing success of the organization,” said Bailey. “Throughout the hiring process, I have been continuously impressed by the health of the organization, the strength of the staff, and the commitment of the Board in ensuring the quality of services provided by the FRCoT in the community of Truckee.
“I am also especially grateful for Emily Diepenheim’s leadership as acting executive director over the past eight months. I look forward to jumping into my new role and engaging with the FRCoT clients, key partners and community.”
This addition to the FRCoT team comes after an extensive search by a transition committee comprised of three Board members and an external consultant.
Emily Diepenheim has served as acting executive director since the departure of Adela Gonzales de Valle last March. The staff, Board and volunteers have maintained a seamless experience for the FRCoT organization and clients — providing quality services and support during the search for a new executive director.
Since its inception in 2001, the Family Resource Center of Truckee has been a primary point of contact for families seeking to improve their lives. The mission of the agency is to promote social and economic success in the community by providing education, mobilizing resources and advocating for change. The FRCoT strives to support and assist families and individuals to overcome various challenges. All of FRCoT’s programs are centrally located and easily accessible to the families most in need of support. Programs help build on family strengths and assets and are delivered through strategies of prevention, education, support and networking in collaboration with community partners.
