Board of Trustees

Implementing Our Mission

The Board is comprised of men and women who reside in our community and work in the field such as law, accounting, business, education, finance, real estate, social work, marketing, journalism, and government. Members are responsible for developing the board's strategic plan.

The Board ensures that the agency's mission is implemented: Bergen Family Center strengthens communities by providing vital services to families. We provide services to older adults, teens and toddlers to enhance their ability to function independently. We provide counseling, and vital resources to help families manage challenges and improve the quality of their lives.

Through its committee structure, the Mission and Strategic Plan goals and objectives are actualized. Committees consist of both board members and community volunteers.
