A Message from Our President & CEO
I am honored to have been selected to serve as the next President & CEO for Boys & Girls Aid. Having been with the agency for more than seven years, I am far too aware of the issues surrounding child welfare and the importance of ensuring every child has a family to call their own.
Michael Balter was the President & CEO for 30 years. I know he will be a tough act to follow, and I have tremendous respect for the work he has accomplished during his tenure. Michael has been a constant advocate for children by moving Boys & Girls Aid from enabling a system of care to changing a system of care. He has been a strong supporter of the importance of family and this has guided him throughout his efforts. I’m proud to have worked with and for Michael.
I believe that no matter how successful in life we may become, we all need family. Rarely do we accomplish anything alone. It is the guidance, stability and love a family can provide that will assist in our successes. And every child deserves this opportunity.
As the President & CEO of Boys & Girls Aid, I look forward to working and advocating for children together. I know the challenges facing the children we serve are great, but I’m up for the challenge and believe we will make strong and lasting changes in their lives. It is the support from our community that makes the work at Boys & Girls Aid successful. I look forward to serving this wonderful organization and for the opportunities that lie ahead.
Suzan L. Huntington, Ed.D.
President & CEO
