“Erin has demonstrated tremendous professional growth over the past few years at the helm of the Family Resource Center. Under Erin’s direction, we have seen an expansion of the breadth and depth of its programs and services creating greater impact in the Lakes Region and Plymouth areas,” stated Bryant. “The number of children and families that the Family Resource Center serves continues to expand while the quality and reputation of the programs maintains its high standards. Erin and her team never relent on filling the gaps in education and services needed to promote positive long term outcomes for the families we serve,” added Bryant.

Guided by Pettengill, the Family Resource Center program works collaboratively toward engaging the community for the shared goal of supporting children and families in the Lakes Region. In addition to the expansion of existing programs and services, the Family Resource Center is growing the LRCS Autism Center. The FRCCNH received a multi-year grant from the Van Otterloo Family Foundation to support an expansion of Parent Education for families on the Autism Spectrum and to offer more training opportunities for families and staff. Trish Tousignant, FRCCNH Parent Education Manager is stepping forward to manage the Autism Center expansion.

“I appreciate the promotion and especially the recognition it brings to the FRCCNH and the hard work and dedication of our entire team for all they do to strengthen families positively impact children,” commented Pettengill. Erin is a graduate of Keene State College with a degree in Sociology and has a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Capella University.
