Jeffrey Scott Steiner, M.Ed.
Campaign Central Administrator and Executive Director of the Dad’s Resource Center
As executive director of the Dads’ Resource Center, Jeff Steiner runs the only statewide youth advocacy organization that promotes the well-being and healthy development of children from separated or divorced families in Pennsylvania. Through public education, direct resources and government activism, the organization takes a holistic approach to fatherhood, supporting and encouraging dads so they can be fully and actively engaged in the lives of their sons and daughters.
Steiner brings 15 years of experience running nonprofits that benefit youth and families, including Kicks 4 Kids and Bellefonte Family Resource Center. Before that, he served for 15 years as a family counselor at Family Intervention Crisis Services, Adelphia Village and Appalachian Youth Services.
He draws from his personal experience being raised by a single mother, never knowing his father, and as a dad and co-parent to two teenage daughters, Alexa and Zoey, with his wife Gwen. He holds a Master’s degree in Counseling Education from The Penn State University, a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and a Certificate in Choice Theory from the William Classer Institute.
In the field, Steiner serves as a central administrator for the Pennsylvania Greater Father Family Involvement Campaign. He is a member of the Pennsylvania Child Welfare Council, Pennsylvania Office of Child Support Enforcement Parental Advisory Board, and Center County Domestic and Sexual Violence Task Force. He also serves as a Director for the Bellefonte Area School District Board of Education.
A dedicated work from home father, when the family is not supporting Zoey’s equestrian lifestyle, Steiner enjoys getting out to the gym, going for runs, playing poker and following college and professional football.
