About

Our office houses all the FCSS (Family & Community Support Services) programs as well as the programs for LFRN (Lakeland Family Resource Network) and SPYC (St Paul Youth Council). We have a community engaged board that consists of two town councillors and two community members who provide insight on community needs. With four full time staff members we rely on volunteers to ensure our programs are successful.

She'll be the one most likely to answer the phone when you call and create the advertisements you see up on communication boards and social media. Brenda has two teenagers that keep her on her toes and a couple side hustles that keep her connected to our community. She is always willing to help and if she doesn't know the answer for you she will ask around until she finds out. Need to connect? email her.

Michelle Duffy - LFRN Director

Michelle has been with the team since 2016. Here role as Parent Link Director evolved to the Director at Lakeland Family Resource Network (LFRN) in 2020. Her dedication and passion towards the development of our youth in our community is outstanding. Although she continues to raise her two grown sons, her compassion and love for these little "chickens" of our community shines through daily. She knows the importance of connecting with our youth early in life is the way to be able to give them the building blocks to be the absolute best that they can be.  

Kim Ouellette - LFRN Assistant

Kim joined the team in 2017. Her daily goal is to connect with kids in any way she can. She sings, dances, crafts, plays, reads, runs, jumps and skips! Simply put, she lights up when there are children of any age in front of her. Her passion for these youth in our community is infectious. Her background in child development and raising two kids of her own has given her the skills, experience and knowledge to connect. Want to go on a "bug hunt"? email her today!
