Children’s Bureau Inc. is taking over operations of a Noblesville not-for-profit in “fiscal distress” after the smaller agency lost a key federal grant.
The Children’s Bureau Inc. on Monday named a president and CEO to replace Ron Carpenter, who left the Indianapolis not-for-profit in August after 16 years as president.
Since its origins as the Widows and Orphans Asylum in 1851, the Children’s Bureau has been working to
fix broken families in Indianapolis. Now the local not-for-profit has expanded its reach into 37 Indiana
counties–growing its budget 22 percent in the process. But the agency remains focused on Marion County, where it’s building
a $9.2 million service center at 16th and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. streets.
