Meet the Leadership Team: Angela (Angie) Daniels


“Who are you and what are you doing here?” is a time-honored question at Action for Children that reflects our culture of curiosity and passion for what we do. To get to know the team that’s driving the work forward at Action for Children, we’re turning the question around on our Leadership Team!

Who are you and what are you doing here?

I am the Director of Family and Community Engagement which means I have the great honor of supporting all of Action for Children’s programs that are family-facing! Our Family and Community Engagement programs provide parents with tools and resources to help with child rearing, co-parenting, child development, kindergarten readiness, foster, kinship & adoption, child care search, and connecting to home visiting providers to name a few.

How did you get here?

I knew as I was finishing up my bachelor’s degree as an adult learner in Sociology, that I wanted to help those who are underserved, unserved, marginalized and needing a hand up. I know what it is like to be a parent in need and utilizing the resources and navigating government programs. My compass has pointed me to this exact place so I can give back in the most empathetic and compassionate way!

What excites you about your role?

I get excited seeing my coworkers shine in their expertise, passion and compassion for the families we serve. Action for Children’s Family and Community Engagement programs are changing lives and the trajectory of generations to come.

What do you want people to know about Action for Children?

I want people to know that Action for Children’s services are here to help you as a parent and an early childhood education professional. You don’t have to figure it out alone but there are experts here that will help you add tools to your toolbelt to ensure you, your child, and family are successful in school and in life.
