New director takes over family resource center
Friday, Aug. 21, 2015 — Elizabeth Allen is the new director of the Westwood Family Resource Center located at the One Stop at Second and Birch streets. She replaces Desiree Naseath who left the position Aug. 14 to move to the valley where she will attend the University of California, Davis to obtain a degree in sociology.
“Desi has been great. There will be big shoes to fill,” said Allen, who trained under Naseath for a few weeks before stepping into the role.
Although new to the position of director, Allen is familiar with the community and the work the center does. She gained insight when she was hired as the Westwood case manager for Lassen County Behavioral Health in May 2013, working from the One Stop where the Westwood Family Resource Center is located.
