On April 1st 2016, we welcome Barb Brown as our new Executive Director and offer her our congrats on her new role. Here is what Barb is saying about her new opportunity: “I am very excited to have the opportunity to lead Connections as it continues to be a progressive, family-centred organization. My goal is to carry on providing exceptional services and on building and advancing relationships within and outside of the organization with the help and support of families, volunteers, community partners and a skilled, committed and experienced staff team.”

Barb currently manages the parenting component of the OEYC and she will step down from her position Feb 26th 2016 in order to complete an Executive Director orientation period. Prior to Feb 26th, Barb will pass her current responsibilities to Sharon Paolini who will be assuming the Parenting Educator role, Thanks to the Connections staff and volunteers as well the community agency volunteer for making this transition so collaborative and supportive; we truly could not have done it without you!
