Andrea Hightower has been part of the National Title IV-E Roundtable since 2015, as presenter multiple years, host of the 2017 Roundtable in Arizona, and more recently offering Title IV-E consultation to attendees. This year I’m looking forward to having a chance to learn about your program, your interests, and brainstorming with you on how Title IV-E Partnerships can further enhance and improve workforce support and services for children and families. I have worked within two State Universities, helped create and manage University Research and Training Centers, worked within two State Child Welfare/Protection systems, managed multiple federal funding sources with Arizona Governor’s Strategic Planning and Budgeting Office, and also within both small and National not-for-profit organizations devoted to supporting safe, thriving, and supportive communities for families.
