Kootenay Family Place (KFP) is under new leadership after long-time executive director Jim Fisher retired this week. Fisher spent 16 years with the agency.
“Jim has demonstrated commitment, compassion and forward thinking as Kootenay Family Place met the changing needs of both our families and the communities we serve,” said KFP’s board of directors in a press release.
“Jim has left his stamp on the agency and built a great foundation for the organization as we face a post-COVID-19 world.”
Sally Bojechko and Lynnene Lewis will now be taking the helm as co-executive directors. Both Bojechko and Lewis have a long history with KFP, collectively dedicating over 60 years of service in a variety of roles.
“Together they bring a wealth of experience and diverse skills and abilities to this critical position. We are confident that their leadership will continue to enhance our services and lead the organization in its future development,” said the KFP board.
“The board is confident that Kootenay Family Place is in good hands and will continue to effectively serve the communities of West Kootenay Boundary Region.”
Kootenay Family Place has been providing services to children, youth and families throughout the West Kootenay Boundary Region since 1972.
