Since 2006, Executive Director Shawn M. Lacy, J.D. has led Family Support Services, successfully expanding its service delivery at a time when many organizations have been driven to downscale their programs. Family Support Services helps about 2,000 children and their parents each year through early intervention services, early childhood education, parenting education and support programs, suburban School=Based Child Care, and preschool programs in the Philadelphia area.
An effective public speaker and a strong advocate for children, Ms. Lacy previously served as the Assistant Chief of the Philadelphia Defenders Association, Child Advocacy Unit. She has been a leader in the child welfare community, and has spent her career empowering families to rise to meet the many challenges of parenting, despite poverty and other stumbling blocks.
