We welcome our new Executive Director Rhonda Rogers!

She’s a strong advocate for high-quality services for vulnerable populations. Ms. Rogers specializes in developing and overseeing new and innovative programs. Her commitment to families, children, and youth, and to high-quality programs spans a timeframe of more than two decades.

She explains below her vision for our Center – today and for the future.

1) What made you want to become the executive director of Lake Worth West Community Center?

Rhonda Rogers: I wanted to become the new executive director of Lake Worth West Community Center because of all of the great work that the organization provides for the community.  Lake Worth West has a great reputation in the community and you can see the positive impact each and every day.  I had the pleasure of working with the organization as its program officer with the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, so I was aware of the agency’s long-standing quality programs.

2) What are your main goals for the center for the coming years?

Rhonda Rogers: My main goals are to increase the exposure of the organization (through social media and the website), grow our board of directors, and increase our partnerships and funding. I know that these are large goals, but with the great team that I have and the amazing programs, I am sure to get these accomplished.

3) What are you most looking forward to in your new job?

Rhonda Rogers: I am most looking forward to providing direct services to clients.  I have been behind a desk for the last eight years and I love to hear the voices of the children and see the smiles on so many faces.  I am enjoying the daily activities and programs that take place at the center.

I am looking forward to contributing to the future of Lake Worth West and leaving a legacy of quality programs and services for the neighboring community.

Feel free to contact Ms. Rogers any time at rrogers@lakeworthwest.org or 561-649-9600. Or come on by the Center and say hello!
