RCS Pinellas announces John “Tracy” Wiecking as executive director of the Haven of RCS, a nonprofit in Clearwater.

Wieckling served as Director of Special Services and Chief Operating Officer for 31 years with Community Treatment, Inc., a comprehensive federally-qualified health center providing medical, dental, mental health and substance use treatment services to indigent individuals and families. For more than three decades, he was part of a team that created a child advocacy center providing forensic interviewing of children who were allegedly seriously physically or sexually abused, as well as equine and canine therapy services.
Wieckling also served as Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity in western Wisconsin before moving to Florida. He has served on numerous community organization boards and task forces.
