Next Board Member:
Anne Youngblood began her nonprofit career in 1984 with Commuter Transportation Services, which formed some of the nation’s first public/private partnerships between corporations and governments at all levels to reduce congestion through innovative strategies now known as flex-time, job sharing, home offices and tele-commuting. She subsequently served as Executive Director of several of these non-profits in California.
Youngblood later formed a consulting firm, DASH Associates, to work with public and private sector clients, establishing non-profits, developing strategic plans, advising nonprofit Boards, writing and implementing grants and conducting feasibility studies. By 2000, her work transitioned into the child welfare and advocacy arena. She currently is a member of Everychild Foundation, is on the Board of Angels Nest Transitional Living Program and is a member of the Los Angeles Funders to End Homelessness.
Everychild consists of 225 women who, through their annual dues, provide a $1 million grant to an L.A. County agency or organization that serves children who suffer from disease, disability, abuse, neglect or poverty. Angels Nest is a nonprofit that provides housing for youth who age out of foster care. LA Funders to End Homelessness is a collaborative of large foundations. Youngblood also was a Board member of the Donaldson Adoption Institute.
