New Executive Director for INMED Family and Youth Opportunity Center

Sterling, Virginia: INMED Partnerships for Children is pleased to announce that Cecilia Capece has joined its Loudoun team as Executive Director of the Family and Youth Opportunity Center in Sterling, VA. Her primary role will focus on developing partnerships to expand INMED’s ability to serve low-income communities in Loudoun County to protect children from the immediate and irreversible harm of abuse, neglect, violence, homelessness and instability and to equip them for self-sufficiency and success.

Prior to joining INMED, Ms. Capece spent more than 20 years in development, communications and marketing with nonprofit organizations. Her work has included corporate fundraising for such programs as Education Alley, fostering student interest in STEM and aerospace activities via the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics, protecting endangered species through the National Wildlife Federation and producing entertainment industry-sponsored events for the Sundance Film Festival. Throughout her career, the common thread has been her keen ability to catalyze partnerships that inspire future generations.

“As the Executive Director of the Opportunity Center, I plan to be a fearless crusader who will mobilize industry and community stakeholders to build partnerships for positive social change,” says Ms. Capece. “When local businesses and individuals take an active role in supporting sustainable family programs, we can transform and enrich the communities where we work and live.”

“Cecilia brings a rich history of organizational development and growth to support INMED’s focus on scaling the impact of its Family and Youth Opportunity Center,” notes INMED CEO Dr. Linda Pfeiffer.  “We are excited at the prospect of her helping us serve more children and families to share in—and contribute to—the success of our region.”

INMED Partnerships for Children is an international humanitarian organization that has improved the lives of millions of children and families in 100+ countries for more than 30 years. Headquartered in Sterling, Virginia, INMED has served low-income communities in Loudoun since 1994 by providing child development and family education, after-school and academic enrichment, skills development and job readiness services, homelessness prevention and intervention programs, and intensive case management for families in crisis.
