Family Service Association (FSA), a non-profit organization serving the social service needs of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, has hired a new Chief Executive Officer. Dan Hoxworth will be joining the organization effective July 1, 2018.
Mr. Hoxworth has devoted his career to nonprofit work. Most recently, he worked as the Executive Director of Capstone Community Action Program in Central Vermont. Capstone is a community action agency that provides social service programs to families in a three-county area. While there he successfully garnered an additional $4 million in statewide funding for low-income Weatherization Assistance, he created a new 9500 square foot Capstone Integrated Service Center, he secured a Head Start grant to create 3 new classrooms, secured 3 year $150,000 gift from private donors through their foundation and much more.
Mr. Hoxworth is a visionary nonprofit leader, community builder, and catalyst who has sought to create doorways of opportunity for all people. He began his career in the nonprofit sector as a neighborhood leader in Kansas City, creating the pilot curbside recycling project in the Kansas City metropolitan area and orchestrating a coalition that led to a focused strategy of revitalization for the urban core. He had the opportunity to make a community’s dream come true in initiating and completing the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Center for Community Building in St. Paul, Minnesota, a 93,000 square foot, $25 million project that welcomes immigrants and refugees.
Mr. Hoxworth is committed to continuous improvement and utilizes program evaluation techniques to expand programs while augmenting quality. He has a strong fiscal and operation management background and expertise in collaborating with nonprofit peers to forge innovative and effective programmatic solutions. He is dedicated to instilling transparency, accountability and candor throughout an organization and building new leaders to create a deep bench to sustain an organization’s greatness.
The staff and Board of Directors will all deeply miss our current CEO, Dom Betro, who has led FSA from a small very specialized nonprofit to the strong, multifaceted organization that it is today. We are all pleased however that we have been able to hire a forward-thinking, innovative leader who will continue to sustain and build on FSA’s leadership in the provision of social services to the Inland Empire.
