Working to prevent and treat child abuse is no small task; it is estimated that 3 million children suffer from abuse each year. The staff at Family Resources are leaders in their field who constantly seek and implement best practices and evidence-based approaches to compassionately serving families in need.
We are proud to have the finest leadership and stewards of our mission.
Executive Director Aimee’s desire has always been to give a voice to those whose voices are not heard. This aspiration led her to an early career as a teacher in one of California’s many under-served communities.
Through Aimee’s teaching experiences, she became more aware of the need for improvement in after-school programs. In 2012, she came to Family Resources as the Senior Director of the Beverly Jewel Wall Lovelace (BJWL) Out-of-School Time program. Aimee’s direction changed the focus of BJWL from a strictly academic setting to a social and emotional out-of-school time experience. Following through with her desire to give everyone a voice, she introduced the opportunity for professional development to staff at all levels.
Since becoming Executive Director in 2016, Aimee has led the way for cultural equality within the Family Resources staff and Board of Directors. She has restructured services under the Prevention, Intervention and Treatment umbrella to give the public a clearer vision of the services Family Resources provides. Aimee lends her voice not only to the children Family Resources treats, but also to her furry friends at home and beyond. A devoted animal advocate, she can be seen carrying her beloved Yorkshire Terrier, Buddy, to the workplace during preschool parties and to social justice rallies.
Her goal is to create a world where no child lives in fear of abuse.
