The Infant Welfare Society of Evanston (IWSE) has appointed Stephen Vick as the organization’s new executive director. He will oversee the operation of the organization, including the early childhood education center based programs at Baby Toddler Nursery and Teen Baby Nursery and the home-based Family Support Services, which have helped children and families thrive since 1913.  His leadership will support IWSE’s continued work as a delegate agency with the School District 65 Early Head Start program.

IWSE Board Chair Helen Hilken said, “As the organization begins this exciting new chapter, we are thrilled with Mr. Vick’s experience and commitment to continue its long tradition of service to the community of Evanston. Mr. Vick’s vision for the future of IWSE and his experience in creating partnerships and community support for programs benefiting children and families will help us build on and strengthen IWSE’s 102 years of service to families in Evanston.”

“I am eager and excited to be joining the Infant Welfare Society of Evanston. I look forward to working with our parents and families to provide an early childhood environment that is engaging, supportive and rooted in early education research and best practice,” Mr. Vick said.
