Kathleen Vourlos - FCS Director of Nursing

For more than 60 years, FCS has provided home care throughout Monmouth County for seniors and adults with mental, developmental and physical disabilities. FCS Director of Nursing Kathleen Vourlos says Home Care presents a unique opportunity to care for individuals who are at their most vulnerable. “An invitation to provide care in someone’s home is both a privilege and a responsibility,” Kathleen says. “The nurses, the Certified Home Health Aides (CHHAs), Supportive Aides and office staff take that responsibility seriously.”

Paul Stach - Chair, Board of Directors

Mr. Stach, who joined the FCS Board of Directors in 2012, has served in a variety of leadership capacities, including Chair of the agency’s Revenue Task Force. In addition to his volunteer work with FCS, Mr. Stach is a Trustee at the Church of the Nativity Roman Catholic Church in Fair Haven, NJ where he also serves as a member of the Finance Committee and a lector, and has chaired the Bishop’s Annual Appeal. He is also Treasurer of the Monmouth Beach Bath and Tennis Club in Monmouth Beach, NJ, where he and his family are members.

“It is a great personal honor to be chosen as Chair of the Board and to follow in the footsteps of my talented and hardworking predecessors,” Mr. Stach says. “During my tenure as Chair, we will strive to increase our ability to meet the needs of the many who fall between the cracks of our society through existing and new programs; to maintain and improve the strong financial posture of the agency so that it can continue its great accomplishments for the next one hundred-plus years; and to preserve and expand the extraordinarily dedicated and hardworking staff of FCS.”

Navarumsunk Auxiliary

In December of 1956, Olivia Dutcher, a longtime FCS Board member, invited a group of women to her home to discuss the formation of a Rumson-Fair Haven auxiliary to support the mission of the agency. The informal get-together on a chilly winter day in March 1957 evolved into The Navarumsunk Auxiliary. The group took its name from the Native American tribe that once inhabited the island. Since then, this group of active community volunteers has helped raise thousands of dollars and much-needed awareness of Family & Children’s Service programs and services.

The Auxiliary hosts several fundraisers throughout the year to support the agency. Its premier event, the Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show, now in its 59th year, will take place Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at Branches in West Long Branch.

In the fall, Auxiliary holds its annual Navarumsunk Bridge Benefit, a duplicate bridge tournament and luncheon where Master Points are awarded. The tournament raises more than $5,000 for FCS programs and services annually.
