Our Team

Our experienced and dedicated staff has been serving the findlay Community for years. Meet them!

Stacy Shaw

Executive Director

Stacy Shaw has been in the child welfare field for almost 30 years. She began her career at a local private foster care agency Diversion Treatment Foster Care where she served as the State Director for 27 years serving the Findlay, Cincinnati, and Cleveland areas. Stacy was the Coordinator of Hancock County Children and Family First Council and the Help Me Grow Early Intervention program in 2016. In January of 2017, Stacy joined the staff of Children’s Mentoring Connection of Hancock County as the Executive Director.

Stacy has served on many committees including Northwest Ohio Foster Care and Adoption Committee, Ohio Association of Children Services of Ohio, Hancock County Opioid Task Force, Human Trafficking Coalition, and Raise the Bar. She is a member of the National Association of Social Workers.

Stacy is excited to be a member of the Children’s Mentoring Connection Team. She has seen the difference a caring adult can make in the lives of children in foster care, adoption, and mentoring. The one thing she consistently has heard from those involved in the lives of children is how much the child has impacted the adult’s life as well.

In her role, Jennie focuses on building connections in the community, recruiting youth and volunteers for our programs, and planning the organization’s fundraisers. In her free time, Jennie enjoys watching her son wrestle in college and spending time with family and friends.
