Partnership for Families, Children and Adults (Partnership) is thrilled to announce two exciting changes in leadership.
Next week, Partnership will welcome Wendy Winters aboard as the Director of Elder and Disability Services and Quality Improvement. A graduate of the University of Memphis, Winters holds a master's degree in Public Administration. Winters spent the last four years as Executive Director of the Chattanooga Regional Homeless Coalition, where she spearheaded homeless response efforts in our region on behalf of the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In addition to her extensive experience in housing awareness and advocacy, Winters brings to Partnership a comprehensive knowledge of grants, program development, and strategic acumen.
Partnership Director of Deaf, Deaf-Blind and Hard-of-Hearing Services, Pam Smith, has been promoted to Director of Deaf, Deaf-Blind and Hard-of-Hearing and Auxiliary Services – a unique opportunity to use her many years of for-profit experience to lead the way towards stronger, more sustainable stewardship and greater community impact for the organization. Smith’s eight-year tenure with Partnership recently included an interim role as Director of the Center for Family Connections, a program that supports parents and children throughout the Tennessee Valley by providing parenting classes, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) education, supervised visitations, and resource referrals. Smith is a graduate of Covenant College with a degree in Organizational Management.
One of the oldest human services non-profits in the Chattanooga area, Partnership for Families, Children and Adults has provided comprehensive care, counseling, and advocacy to the Tennessee Valley for 145 years.
