Erin Stucky, Executive Vice President at KVC Health Systems, was selected to be a fellow of the Annie E. Casey Foundation. She will use the 20-month fellowship to achieve her goal to improve the lives of children and families.
Stucky said, “Changing the face of child welfare is a commitment I have made to myself, KVC, communities we serve, and most importantly, children and families, throughout my career. This opportunity to participate in the Annie E. Casey Foundation Children and Family Fellowship provides me with unique leadership development alongside 15 other talented, accomplished and ambitious leaders from throughout the country who are also committed to leading system reforms or community change efforts to improve the life circumstances of vulnerable children and families. I am honored to have been selected and fully committed to strengthening child and family services systems.”
The Casey Foundation created the Children and Family Fellowship to increase the number of leaders to generate reform to benefit children and families in their communities. To work toward their goals, Fellows participate in seminars, coaching and site visits. The group is made up of 16 public systems administrators, nonprofit leaders and community development professionals.
