Chambliss Center for Children has promoted Elizabeth Blasbery to the position of Executive Director of Residential Services. Mrs. Blasbery has been employed by the agency since 2007, serving most recently as the Associate Director. Her predecessor, Elizabeth Pelton, retired in June after 30 years of service to the children and the organization.
Mrs. Blasbery is a licensed master’s level social worker with 12 years of experience working with children who have been abused, abandoned, neglected, or have come through the juvenile court system. Before coming to Chambliss Center for Children, she served as a social worker in England.
In her new role, she will ensure that the program is in compliance with all licensing & accreditation requirements as well as oversee implementation of Sanctuary, an evidence-based program used to help the children move past trauma they have experienced. Additionally, Mrs. Blasbery will focus on growing the program through recruitment of additional foster homes.
