Greetings!  I would like to introduce myself as the new Executive Director of Boone County Family Resources.  I am honored and privileged to serve in this new role as the Agency, guided by an amazing Board of Directors, continues to provide quality services to persons with developmental disabilities in Boone County.  I have been fortunate to work at Boone County Family Resources for twenty years and in the field of developmental disabilities for almost thirty years.

Executive Director, Robyn Kaufman, has led the Agency for several years and is ensuring a smooth transition in leadership before retiring. Boone County Family Resources thrived and grew throughout Robyn’s tenure. She leaves a legacy of quality services to persons served and their families.

The Agency’s mission, in short, is to help persons with developmental disabilities thrive in the community, connect with others and achieve their personal goals. Boone County Family Resources is a quality agency filled with hard-working, creative and dedicated employees who put the mission into action and make this a great place to work.  I look forward to my new role with optimism and enthusiasm and am thankful for the many kinds words and well-wishes I have received.

–Laura Cravens, Executive Director
