JRI, a provider of trauma-informed care to children and families in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, has named Dani Silcox Director of Finance for JRI’s Education and Community Based Programs.  In this new role, Silcox will be responsible for the financial support for these programs.

JRI operates nine schools, which provide quality education to a broad range of students whose needs cannot be met by the traditional school setting, from children with developmental disabilities to students struggling with issues such as past trauma, depression, anxiety, and mood disorders.  JRI’s community based programs include: intensive care coordination; in-home and outpatient therapies; mentoring services; in-home behavioral support; parent/caregiver support and education; mentoring support for gay, lesbian, transgendered and commercially sexually exploited youth; and mental health evaluation and consultation services for youth involved in the juvenile justice system.

Silcox, a resident of Newton, Mass., joined the JRI team in 2011 as a contracts manager, where she successfully provided the fiscal guidance to JRI Health that has allowed the division to maintain sustainable operations and high quality services.  Prior to her career at JRI, Silcox worked as an Associate at K&L Gates law firm and as a Research Associate at Zweig-DiMenna, a hedge fund in New York.

“When Dani joined JRI more than five years ago, it quickly became obvious that she has the skills, passion and personality to be an invaluable member of JRI’s fiscal department,” said Bisser Dokov, CFO at JRI.  “Dani understands the needs of our programs and is able to make the best decisions in allocating resources in the most efficient way.”

“I’m excited to take on the responsibility of Director of Finance for these important programs,” said Silcox.  “Our goal is to run the highest quality programs for the individuals we serve.”

Silcox holds a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Public Policy from Harvard College in Cambridge and a Juris Doctor degree from Fordham University School of Law in New York City.
