COUNTY—TriCity Family Services, a private, nonprofit human service agency serving the community members and organizations of central Kane County, is looking for board members to serve on the agency Board of Directors.

TriCity Family Services (TFS) is dedicated to strengthening people and building community through the provision of quality, affordable counseling, youth crisis intervention, prevention and early intervention services that promote sound mental health and effective family functioning.

The Board of Directors of TCFs accepts the responsibilities inherent in governance of the agency and for fulfilling its mission. Through their leadership, board members establish sources of funding, an adequate pool of volunteers and a superior professional staff to help TCFS meet its goals and achieve its mission of service in the community.

The TCFS Board seeks to continuously strengthen its impact by attracting individuals who are committed to meeting the critical needs of area residents for affordable, professional outpatient mental health services.

The TCFS Board values the many gifts a new director can bring to the table—time, talent, creativity, energy and a willingness to assist in increasing awareness of its mission and services in the community, and in cultivating relationships with current and prospective supporters. At this time, the agency is particularly in need of board members with skills in the areas of accounting and finance, marketing and public relations, and computer technology.
