Sheila Shur came to BFC in 2002 as a care manager. Since 2010 Shelia has been leading Bergen Family Center's innovative program that provides life-changing services to homebound older adults.
“Our staff takes great pride in leading vulnerable homebound senior citizens to programs that can benefit them in critical phases of their lives. After they've contributed so much to our community, we make sure that older adults are not forgotten.”
Mary Stevens began as BFC’s accountant in 2011 and became Director of Finance in 2014.
“The staff at BFC is another family away from home. Not only do we provide our community with a nurturing place to thrive, but we also provide our staff with a warm, positive work environment. Thats' the reason it's a pleasure to come to work. And helping so many people makes it all worth while.”

“I love Bergen Family Center—there’s something for every age group and for every member of every family that walks through our doors.”

“I love children and feel that a child’s learning depends on the parent being the first teacher and the staff as facilitators in the child’s growth as a competent being.”
