New chief chosen for Danville agency

DANVILLE – Tonya Jones, human resources director with Your Family Resource Connection, was named as the organization's interim executive director earlier this week.

The board terminated an agreement Wednesday with Executive Director James May.

May had been hired to replace former executive director Tom Dilts, who resigned in May.

"(May) wasn't a correct fit for the organization," Board President Jeanie Hays said of the move.

Hays said May had a six-month probation period with the nonprofit organization, which provides a domestic violence shelter, a homeless shelter and other services to women.

Jones, 37, has been named interim director while the board seeks a permanent replacement.

Jones formerly worked for the Housing Authority of Champaign County and with Kelly Services in Champaign before joining Your Family Resource Connection in June as the human resources director.

Hays said the organization is in "a much better position now to look for an executive director than we were previously."
