Our Executive Director, Maryland Guthas, first began her association with Bartow Family Resources as a volunteer from 1990-92, when the center was still in the formative stages . Having walked through her own "crisis pregnancy", she felt called to the work of the Center from its inception.
Prior to coming on board as Executive Director, Maryland served as the Executive Director of Felton Manor and Star Manor assisted living facilities. She is presently involved in the community through the Chamber, Teen Pregnancy Task Force, Bartow Executive Women, Domestic Violence Task Force, and is a graduate of the 2002 Chamber Leadership class.
Maryland is married to Greg Guthas, and they have three children, Brent Guthas, Leah Guthas, and Lauren Leon, son-in-law Edward Leon, and three grandchildren, Annabel, Alexander, and Amelia.
