At ACH, we know kids can’t wait, even during a pandemic. We are so proud of our staff who continued to provide the best care for our children and families, despite the many challenges COVID-19 brought our way. We are honoring our employees through a video series, COVID Heroes.

Each week this month they will tell their stories of how they were able to persevere and help those with the most need.

CEO Wayne Carson is kicking off this series in the video below:

In the last video of our COVID Heroes series, staff from Our Community Our Kids, ACH’s community-based care division, share their experiences accompanying a COVD-19 positive child in her journey back to her mother in Arizona.

Hear how Nick Little and Tia Magee led their teams during the pandemic and provided support to staff in direct care with ACH’s young adults. 

Hear how Matthew Day consistently showed up for the youth in ACH’s Youth Emergency Shelter to provide care, safety, and comfort throughout the pandemic.   


Danny Pectol, Kaitlyn Smith, Valerie May-Brown, and Angela MacLeod from ACH’s Wedgwood Campus share their experiences taking direct care of COVID-19 positive children.


Ryker Hampton and Crystal Arvie share their experiences of conducting foster care trainings for parents in their homes.
