Kristi House Welcomes Kadie Black as New Development Director
MIAMI – Kristi House, Inc., the not-for-profit Children’s Advocacy Center serving child-victims of abuse and sex trafficking in Miami-Dade County, announced the appointment of Kadie Black as Development Director of the 25-year-old organization.
A native Miamian who has dedicated her career to child welfare, Kadie Black returned to Miami this fall after six years in New York City, honing her fundraising skills and raising millions of dollars in support at community organizations, including most recently the Union for Reform Judaism. Previously, in Miami from 2006 to 2015, she served in community outreach roles at three of Miami’s leading child welfare agencies: Casa Valentina, Foster Care Review and Our Kids of Miami-Dade/Monroe.
“We are thrilled to have Kadie on board,” CEO Amanda Altman said. “Kadie’s deep understanding of child welfare, roots in South Florida, and her love of community make her perfect for this critical role.”
Ms. Black first came to the Kristi House Child Advocacy Center some two decades ago as a 19-year-old Guardian ad Litem volunteer.
“It’s a tremendous honor to come ‘full circle’ back to Kristi House,” Ms. Black said. “This position allows me to serve an exemplary community organization and meld my passion for breaking cycles of violence with my love of interacting with people. I look forward to helping Kristi House continue to grow to meet the vast needs of children and families in Miami-Dade.”
Ms. Black holds a master degree in Communications and Media and a bachelor degree in Criminal Justice from Lynn University.
