New Faces and Expertise



Meet Our New Intern

Mabel Davis is a 2nd year graduate student working to obtain her Master’s in Social Work at UT. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Criminology at Penn State University and moved to Nashville in 2016, after living overseas in Guatemala and working with the International Justice Mission. Mabel lives in Southeast Nashville with her husband.

In addition to welcoming Mabel, we also added two people to our Board of Trustees. Kristina Clark joins us as the President and Founder of KM Clark Consulting Group, a consulting company dedicated to developing and sustaining non-profits. Ashford Hughes, Sr., joins us as the Executive Officer for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Metro Nashville Public Schools.  We are fortunate to have them!
