Jones was deemed by Sabathani’s board to be uniquely qualified to serve in this capacity based on her previous experience and expertise. In addition to leading African American Family Services for 10 years, Jones’ core competencies include strategic growth opportunity development; learning and leadership development; budget management; resource development and grants management; and organizational effectiveness and capacity building.

“Detangling organizational puzzles is my secondary love,” shared Jones. “The work allows me to help strengthen community organizations so they can meet their missions to serve.”

The service of former executive director Clyde Turner was concluded in June 2013.
