Leadership (GuideStar ExchangeThe GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more. January, 2014)

Nancy Carbone

Profile:

Nancy Carbone has a background in education and maternal health. As a long-time resident of the Carroll Gardens community, Nancy had several friends on the job at the time of 9/11. She immediately began to support the firefighter community. Quickly, they stated their need for a place to gather separate from the department. She recognized the unique long-term needs of the fire department members and, with their support and encouragement, founded an organization dedicated to meeting those needs. Since September 11, 2001 she has served as head of Friends of Firefighters, Inc.

Leadership Statement:

Since 2001, Friends of Firefighters has served the New York City firefighting community through direct service and our many partnerships. Confidential counseling, therapeutic modalities such as yoga, biofeedback, massage therapy, acupuncture are offered in a circa 1870's firehouse (restored by firefighters from all five boroughs.) As our organization has grown, so too have the needs of the firefighters and their families. We have been privileged to bear witness to the bravery of our firefighters and honored to be welcomed into their lives. With this trust comes responsibility, a commitment to continue providing assistance to those who find it most difficult to ask for help.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Accomplishments: This past year we have succeeded in  raising awareness to the needs of the firefighter community via three different fundraisers and a greater on-line presence.  We have provided outreach and services; offered wellness services such as acupuncture, biofeedback, and yoga; and have offered resources such as referrals, scholarship opportunities, and guidance in budget and finances.  The mental health program has provided approximately 600 counseling sessions to firefighters and family members. These services focus on providing relief from symptoms of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder; implementation of coping skills; strengthening of social supports and alternatives to aggression and substance abuse.  The peer program provides activities formally once a month, and peer counselors are always available.    Organizationally, we have expanded our staff body allowing us to focus more specifically on services.  We have also added new members to our board of directors and  advisers.     Our ongoing goals are to continue to shape our work to meet the needs of this community.  We will continue to offer services and assess our work through evaluations to ensure that we serve our mission.  We expect to continue to offer wellness, mental health, and peer counseling support.      In 2009, grants from foundations, trusts, and local government made up 43% of our funding, and in 2010 it jumped to 74%. In 2009, funding from general public was 57%, and in 2010 26%. Percentage of total expenses devoted to services was 91% in 2009, and 87% in 2010.
