Friends Association for the Care & Protection of Children has named Jennifer Lopez as its new Executive Director.

Lopez will be responsible for managing the West Chester-based organization and providing strategic planning to enhance its mission of ending homelessness in Chester County. She most recently served as Chester County’s Deputy Chief of Adult Probation & Pretrial Services and will begin her new role on Jan. 21.

“We are thrilled to have Jennifer on board, and we are confident that she will bring a fresh perspective to the organization while continuing the high quality of service that Friends Association provides to families facing homelessness in Chester County,” said Brian Boreman, Friends Association Board President.

“Jennifer was selected after a comprehensive and exhaustive search to find an Executive Director who could take Friends Association to the next level as the breadth of our outreach grows.”

“I look forward to leading the organization in January,” said Lopez. “As a big-picture thinker with executive management skills and direct social service experience, I will promote the mission and vision of Friends Association.”

Lopez’s leadership is driven by first-hand experience working with families in transition with varying needs and a passion to empower diverse communities.

“Her familiarity with local organizations and varying levels of government agencies brings with it a deep understanding of partnerships, systems, process, and gaps,” said Boreman. “She is a visionary leader motivated to increase family stabilization and strengthen communities.”

Last year, Friends Association prevented homelessness for 122 families and 270 children in Chester County.
