Austin Hatcher Foundation Announces New Family Services Coordinator

Wednesday, May 22, 2019
The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer announces Lauren Kelly has been hired as family services coordinator. Ms. Kelly has a background in multiple roles, including nonprofit fundraising, event planning and pre-school teaching.
 
Ms. Kelly is a 2014 University of Alabama graduate, earning a B.S. in restaurant, hotel and meetings management and a minor in business. "Prior to joining the foundation, Kelly spent two and a half years teaching pre-school where she developed skills that are vital for the family services coordinator position," officials said. "She also has extensive volunteer experience in her hometown of Birmingham and was an intern at two different nonprofits where she assisted with fundraising, special event coordination, donation requests, and volunteer management.
Both experiences are crucial, as the Family Services Coordinator is required to develop after-school enrichment programs, educational summer camp activities and plan special monthly events for families to attend."
 
Ms. Kelly and her family relocated from London, England to Chattanooga in January of this year. She has been a part-time volunteer at the foundation since March, assisting with special events and family programs. “I’m honored to join such a special organization, and it’s been wonderful to get to know our children and families during my time as a volunteer,” Ms. Kelly said. “Being able to interact with our families helped me realize the long-term impact the foundation is making. I knew it was something I wanted to be part of, and it’s a privilege to be able to serve our families on a daily basis.”  
 
“We’ve been very fortunate to have one of our part-time volunteers transition into this role. Lauren’s personality and background were the perfect fit for this position and her passion for our mission is exceptional,” said Austin Hatcher Foundation President Amy Jo Osborn. “Lauren will be an integral part of our team as we continue to expand services for families and patients facing pediatric cancer, both in Chattanooga and across the U.S.”
