Executive Director Barbara Kibler Announces Her Retirement

i Apr 7th No Comments by
Dear Friends,
 
It is a year of transition at the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House.
 
After more than 11 years as executive director, Barbara Kibler has announced her retirement. We thank Barbara for her commitment, vision and leadership. Her many accomplishments include dramatically expanded programming, substantial increases in partnerships and funding, significant renovations and improvements to the house, and a more than tripling of the number of people it serves annually. Now in its 113th year, the house serves more than 4,000 families – from toddlers to senior citizens – through a wide range of programs designed to strengthen the community. Needless to say, Barbara is leaving big shoes to fill, but she has graciously agreed to stay on through this period of transition to ensure continuity in services.
 
With this transition, and the certainty of new challenges ahead, it is a natural opportunity for the board to take some time to assess the House’s role in the community and plan thoughtfully and strategically for the future. As we approach next steps, we will be seeking input from the community and our partners. We will involve community advisors in key decisions to ensure that they are made with the needs of those the House serves in clear view.
If you have any questions about the transition or our plans for the future, please do not hesitate to contact Barbara or any member of the board.
 
Sincerely,
 
Alan Schwartz
Board President
Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House
