CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Partnership for Families, Children and Adults recently welcomed nonprofit professional Joy Key as its new Director of Stability Services.

Most recently, Key led local nonprofit Scenic City Clay Arts as the executive director for four years. Key developed staff, enhanced organizational capacity and oversaw daily operations as she successfully formalized the nonprofit organization. Previously, Key professionally served as an independent consultant, adjunct professor and curator of education. As a graduate of The Johns Hopkins University, she holds a master’s in museum studies and a Master of Business Administration from Lee University.

“I look forward to connecting deeper with the community and carrying out the mission of the Partnership,” answered Key when asked about her future at Partnership. “It will be a privilege to empower our community’s families and youth so that they can achieve a brighter and more stable future through our programs.”

As Director of Stability Services, Key leads numerous Partnership community programs, including Camp HOPE Chattanooga benefiting youth affected by trauma due to violence, River City Youth Collective benefiting aged-out foster youth and life-coaching program Building Stable Lives benefiting those in need or involved with the justice system.

According to Partnership CEO Kevin Hyde, Key’s experience and expertise will help strengthen existing stability services programs, as well as help roll out a new stability services program known as Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project in 2023.

“Joy’s proven experience in growth management and staff development will be instrumental in advancing our stability programs and stability staff. The need for our programs is continuing to grow, and we are committed to ensuring our capacity grows alongside it,” said Hyde.

Following a thorough interview process, Key’s appointment comes after the previous Director of Stability Services transitioned into another position within Partnership.
