Support Center Assists Newark Emergency Services for Families with Action Plan

By Gilles Mesrobian, Senior Associate, Support Center

In March 2010, the Support Center began working with Newark Emergency Services for Families (NESF), an agency which provides quality services to individuals and families who need assistance with emergency food, clothing, shelter, utilities, rent, and other basic necessities during times of crisis.

At that time the Board was in the final selection process in its search for a new Executive Director. They were committed to ensuring that a landscape of success was in place for the new ED as well as ongoing support for the staff.

Marge Wood, Board Chair of NESF and CEO of Independence: A Family of Services, stated, “I was very pleased with how quickly the Support Center consultant was able to grasp the agency culture and nuances of the challenges we faced and come up with practical recommendations for solutions.”

After providing an initial organizational assessment, the Support Center worked with the Board, Executive Director and senior staff to develop a customized plan of action to address a range of challenges facing the organization, including a development plan, a board development plan and management tools that ensure the continued progress and success of the agency in its critical work.

According to Damyn Kelly, J.D. NESF’s new Executive Director, “The Support Center’s reports allowed me to immediately address the challenges that the organization faced as opposed to conducting my own assessment… The work of the Support Center has been immensely helpful to me in getting the organization back on track and allowing us to meet the needs of our constituents.”
