Centre hires administrator

There is a new face at the helm of the Family Resource Centre in Vernon

Scott Manjak is the new executive director of the Family Resource Centre.

There is a new face at the helm of the Family Resource Centre, a not-for-profit counselling agency in Vernon since 1992.

Scott Manjak has been hired as executive director and he takes over from Jan Schulz, who has moved to Kelowna.

“We are very pleased to welcome Scott to FRC and the board and staff look forward to working with him,” said Mary Malaby, FRC board chairperson.

Majak is a former mayor of Cranbrook and chief executive officer of the St. Marys Indian Band.

“I look forward to working with the board and  the staff of this extremely worthwhile agency,” he said.

The Family Resource Centre offers a wide variety of support and counselling services to individuals, couples, families and children with concerns around issues such as depression, anxiety, childhood trauma, relationship challenges, communication, self-esteem and post-partum depression.

Services offered include both assessment and therapeutic treatment.
