It has been a privilege.
Dear CCH Friend,
Over the last forty-three years, Collins Children’s Home has been home to over 300 children and it has been my greatest privilege to be a part of this legacy of providing a safe, loving home for hurting children.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to all who have been so supportive of this organization and of me personally over the years. Without you, Collins Children’s Home would not be as strong and vibrant as it is. I am so honored to have been the leader of this incredible organization and will watch with much excitement and anticipation as Collins Home continues to care for children and families in our community.
After fifteen years with Collins Children’s Home, I have submitted my resignation to the board in order to pursue a new career opportunity. I certainly have mixed emotions as I move into this next chapter. The decision for my transition did not come easily. I am extremely proud of all that Collins Children’s Home’s staff, board, kids and community have accomplished and hold dear to my heart the relationships I’ve built during my time as Executive Director.
Over the next few months, the board will be conducting a search for my replacement. In the meantime, we are adding to our already skilled staff to ensure a smooth transition, which includes Tina Justice returning to direct and manage programs and Mr. Robert Kimberly serving in an advisory capacity. Tina has over 20 years of experience in Case Management and Robert is a pastor, licensed counselor and previous Executive Director in South Carolina. I am blessed to know I will be leaving my Collins Home family in such great hands.
All my best,
Alena Pelfrey, Executive Director
Collins Children’s Home
