Year Fourteen – 2000

The turn of the new Century, year 2000, was a game-changing year for FCNI. While we didn’t change add any new programs, we did make vital changes to our infrastructure. Two of these important changes involved hiring an exceptional CPA, Bobbie Boyer, to oversee our Financial Services and an outstanding clinician, Jon Nibbio, to become our Clinical Director . By joining Jim at the helm of FCNI, these two individuals have become cornerstones in the agency’s success over the years.

We hope that you will join us over the next 30 weeks as we share the journey of the Family Care Network, highlighting our partners and collaborators who made the last 30 years of care possible.
