Angela Phinney
Executive Director

I have served as a foster parent, guardian and host home for youth for over 30 years. I have a passion for youth and finding permanent placement in a home that meets the unique needs of the child. In addition, I have over 30 years of experience in the nonprofit field, serving The Arc of Lane County, Senior and Disabled Services and ORI Community and Evaluation Services.

Across the region, young people, especially BIPOC and teens, are struggling to find forever homes. While demand for services continues to rise, we must relook at the service system and find creative and powerful tools to connect families and youth in the foster care system. Adoption is not a one-size fits all process. AFFEC has a strong history of matching youth with nontraditional families and finding a match that can create unity and love for every child. I am very proud to be a part of this organization and provide leadership to making AFFEC relevant and serve unmet/niche communities.

Kelli Smith
Development Coordinator

Kelli was a long term volunteer with A Family For Every Child before finding her place with our organization. Since 2012, her position has grown to include Child Recruitment Services as well as the Volunteer Coordinator for the organization.

“I consider it a privilege to be a part of this organization and to work alongside such dedicated individuals. I firmly believe that there truly is a family for every child.” Kelli is exuberant about her work and eager to form partnerships with agencies and social workers nationwide. “We all have the same goal in mind-to find stable, loving homes for waiting foster children. By providing free recruitment services, we can achieve this goal together.”

While Kelli’s work is her passion, she likes to spend her free time with her husband, two grown children as well as with many friends and relatives. While they enjoy trips to the Oregon Coast, University of Oregon football, and the beauty that is the Pacific Northwest, they are also self-described nerds and their home is filled with their memorabilia collection.
