The Family Tree leads Maryland in preventing child abuse, connects caring communities, and builds strong families to improve society for generations. As the Maryland chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America and The National Exchange Club, we nurture hope where there may be none and give it room to grow and flourish.
The Family Tree is at an exciting moment in its history and in its ability to improve the outcomes of families and children. In January 2023, The Family Tree joined LifeBridge Health, one of the largest and most comprehensive providers of health-related services in Maryland and the surrounding region. With five hospitals, hundreds of primary and specialty care physicians and centers, LifeBridge Health provides a full continuity of care. Since the founding of LifeBridge Health’s first hospital in 1866, we’ve been bravely serving those in need without bias and we’re still here today changing how care is done. LifeBridge Health advocates preventive services, wellness and fitness services, and programs to educate and support the communities we serve.
Having recently completed the implementation of its Strategic Plan, Moving Families Forward, The Family Tree dramatically ramped up its services and increased its impact on Maryland’s families, its communities, and society. Thanks to the leadership of The Family Tree’s Board of Directors and its Executive Director of over 20 years, and now with the support of LifeBridge Health, The Family Tree has a solid reputation and foundation that is poised for growth.
LifeBridge Health and the leadership of The Family Tree seek a dynamic leader who will bring innovation, energy, and the drive to end child abuse through collaboration and ambitious, innovative programming. The new Executive Director has the opportunity to help set LifeBridge Health and The Family Tree’s strategic goals and priorities with a focus on building a new Center of Excellence. The Executive Director will focus efforts on optimizing key external relationships within the community, strengthening LifeBridge Health’s commitment to building healthy families, and developing the Family Tree’s highly professional, capable, and committed staff team and positive organizational culture.
