New Philadelphia, Ohio (WJER) - The next director of the Noah's Hope Child Advocacy Center in is getting ready to make the transition.
Mandy Prosser will be leaving her position as Children’s Services Supervisor at Job and Family Services to take over February 1st as the director of the center where multiple agencies collaborate to handle cases involving young crime victims.
Prosser says her current job already has her active at the center, which she would like to see grow in its abilities.
“I want to look into possibly expanding the amount of interviews that we could do at one time. Currently, we can only do one, so I would like to see us be able to utilize more space and have two people doing interviews at the same time if we can,” she says.
Tuscarawas County Prosecutor and CAC governing board President Ryan Styer says they are pleased with their selection of Prosser, who will guide the center as it eventually moves to a new home in the 2000 block of East High Avenue.
“We really think that she’s the full package and are excited that she’s going to be leading the CAC in what are essentially exciting times for the CAC,” he says.
Prosser has been employed by JFS for the last 10 years. Prior to becoming the Children's Services director, she was a manager of home-based and Help Me Grow programs at Personal Family Counseling Services of New Philadelphia as well as a case manager at Cornerstone Support Services in New Philadelphia. She is replacing Vanessa Stergios, who is going on to be director of statewide programming for the Ohio network of CACs.
