11 Jul Achievement Centers for Children & Families’ CEO Stephanie Seibel Moves to Lead the Organization’s Foundation
Achievement Centers for Children & Families (ACCF) which has served the Delray Beach and southern Palm Beach County communities since 1969, announced that its Chief Executive Officer Stephanie Seibel will move into a new leadership position in a dual role as CEO of the organization’s Foundation and as Strategic Advisor to the Center. ACCF is currently undergoing a national search for a new CEO for the Center, which serves 500 children and families in Delray Beach, Florida with nationally accredited programs in early childhood education, K-12 afterschool and summer programs and comprehensive family support services.
The ACCF Foundation was established in 2001 as a separate 501(c)(3) from the Center to ensure the long-term viability of the Center’s programs and sustainability of its resources. The CEO and Strategic Advisor position is new for the Foundation.
In this new role, Seibel will lead the organization’s long-term funding initiatives, work to expand ACCF’s impact in the community, and expand its programming, outreach, funding and earned revenue. She will serve as a partner to the Center’s new CEO and support to the human service non-profit organization that has an annual budget of $7 million. Seibel has served in various leadership positions at the organization since 2004, assuming the role of CEO in 2013.
“We have been talking about how to grow the Center and develop new, impactful ways to support working families for some time now. I’m grateful that the Board of Directors made this strategic investment in Achievement Centers’ future,” said Seibel. I’m excited to take on this new challenge serving as a strategic partner and working alongside the Center’s new CEO. In this new role, I’ll have the opportunity to use my depth of knowledge, my history in the community, and my network of relationships to expand our services, build partnerships, and explore emerging opportunities.”
