Jacelina Monteiro

Community Resource Specialist

Jacelina is one of our Community Resource Specialists here at the Family Center. As a Community Resource Specialist, Jacelina helps to connect families with needed resources, referrals, and programs. “It is my pleasure to say that I am extremely happy to be serving and doing more for the people in our community; making a difference everyday! I have the pleasure of providing anyone that is in need with the many resources and help that are available. I chose this career path because helping people has always been my passion. My favorite thing about this position is knowing that each day is special because I have the privilege and opportunity of putting a smile on someone's face and knowing that I was of extreme help to them and on some occasions, helped "save" the day. The Family Center in Brockton keeps its family close at heart and as priority always! After getting licensed as a Cosmetologist, going to Bridgewater State University for Early Childhood Education and have worked in many other fields, I finally came across my true passion; serving and helping other people that sometimes don't know where to go and where to turn to. Together with my colleagues and with all the wonderful resources our community has to offer, we can strongly strive to provide help. My favorite hobby is doing volunteer work at my local church, and hanging out with my loved ones. I also enjoy anything that involves arts and crafts because I can get super creative and I find it super relaxing.”
