Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall leadership, governance, and financial accountability of the agency — from strategic planning, financial management, fund development and community relations. The Board ensures that individuals, couples and families in Simcoe County have a place to turn to for professional counselling services and education for years to come. The Board is comprised of a diverse cross-section of community members and professionals who are committed to giving back to the areas in which they live and work.

It is not a requirement that members of the Board be Catholic. It is not necessary for anyone to be Catholic to be involved with the organization as an employee, a volunteer or to receive services from the organization. However, it is necessary for Board Members, employees and volunteers to support the values of the organization. Members of our Board of Directors commit their valuable time and talents to the work of our organization.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our Board, please contact our Executive Director, Michelle Bergin.
