Casey Foundation Names 2016-17 Children and Family Fellows

The Baltimore-based Annie E. Casey Foundation has announced the selection of sixteen leaders from thirteen states as participants in its Children and Family Fellows program.

Now in its third decade, the Casey Fellows program is an intensive executive leadership program designed to give child and family-serving professionals the confidence to successfully lead major system reforms and community change initiatives. Hailing from thirteen different states, the eight women and eight men — all accomplished leaders from the public, nonprofit, and academic sectors working in fields such as juvenile justice, child welfare, education, housing, and health — will use the sixteen-month fellowship to work within their agencies, organizations, and communities toward specific, measurable outcomes for children and families.

"This new class of Casey Fellows is poised to have a profound influence on how children and families fare in this country," said Casey Foundation president and CEO Patrick McCarthy. "The fellowship gives them the tools to achieve large-scale results and a powerful network to expand their reach."
