Wellroot Family Services has announced Allison Ashe as its new CEO following a national search that reached over 250 prospective candidates.   Allison  Ashe is a proven nonprofit leader, communicator, and fundraising professional currently leading strategic initiatives for Covenant House International, the nation’s leading provider of housing and services for youth experiencing homelessness and human trafficking. Before her current role, she was Executive Director of Covenant House Georgia (CHGA) for nine years. During her tenure, she grew and transformed CHGA, which is now a vibrant, visible, best-practice organization considered a top performer in the global Covenant House network. She starts on July 21.
  
Allison will be leading Wellroot at an exciting time in the field of child welfare. There is growing national support for enhancing the ability of children to remain with families of origin and avoiding placement in the foster care system altogether. With a reputation as a leader in Georgia’s child welfare system and strong relationships within the state government, Wellroot is uniquely positioned to address the network gaps and family navigational needs in Georgia by adopting an evidence-based continuum of care model. Ashe’s leadership will be instrumental in implementing this new strategic direction.
