(Chattanooga, TN) December 2, 2021 – Carmen Quezada Hutson returns to the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults (Partnership) to take the role of Director of Victim Support Services effective Dec. 6, 2021.
Hutson was with the Partnership from 2010 until 2018, at which time she was Clinical Director of Stability Services. Hutson returns to the Partnership from United Way of Greater Chattanooga, where, until Dec. 3, she served as Director of Community Programs.
“We are thrilled to welcome Carmen back to the Partnership,” said Pam Ladd, Chief Executive Officer, who lauded Hutson’s extensive experience working with trauma survivors and program development, along with her ability to manage grants and budgets and collaborate with funders. “Just as important, Carmen has demonstrated excellence in leadership and management,” said Ladd.
"Sometimes you have to try something different to know where you need to be on earth. Victim services is where I need to be. I learned so much at United Way; now I’m coming back stronger.”
“Carmen’s knowledge of our organization is exceptional, and she will be a tremendous asset to our agency. We are thrilled to welcome her home again,” added Ladd.
Partnership for Families, Children and Adults is a comprehensive, non-profit human services agency that has been empowering people to build better lives through counseling, crisis intervention, prevention, and education programs for over 140 years. Programs serve area youth; the elderly; the deaf, deaf-blind and hard of hearing; victims of domestic violence; and sexual assault victims. Last year, the agency’s services touched the lives of nearly 19,000 people in 19 counties in Tennessee and four counties in North Georgia.
