Posted September 12, 2012, By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

In Sep­tem­ber, David A. Jack­son announced his res­ig­na­tion as pres­i­dent and chief exec­u­tive offi­cer of the Cen­ter for Work­ing Fam­i­lies Inc., a non­prof­it that helps fam­i­lies in Atlanta’s Neigh­bor­hood Plan­ning Unit V (NPU‑V) achieve eco­nom­ic suc­cess. He recent­ly joined the Mary Reynolds Bab­cock Foun­da­tion in North Car­oli­na as its exec­u­tive director.

Jasmine Williams MillerJas­mine Williams Miller is now the cen­ter’s inter­im pres­i­dent and CEO. Since Feb­ru­ary, Miller has served as the orga­ni­za­tion’s first chief oper­at­ing offi­cer, bring­ing more than 20 years of expe­ri­ence in the non­prof­it sec­tor. In her time at the cen­ter, she has imple­ment­ed a new ser­vice-deliv­ery mod­el and launched the Green Works envi­ron­men­tal employ­ment train­ing pro­gram and an adult lit­er­a­cy program.

The cen­ter embraced a two-gen­er­a­tion approach under David that has led to trans­for­ma­tive results for fam­i­lies,” says Gail Hayes, direc­tor of the Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion’s Atlanta Civic Site. He leaves the cen­ter with a strong board, well-defined mod­el and a blue­print for scale and sustainability.”

Since its launch in 2005, the cen­ter has placed par­tic­i­pants in more than 1,500 jobs and con­nect­ed more than 6,000 house­holds with pub­lic ben­e­fits, return­ing more than $5.6 mil­lion to the community.
