Throughout his career, Brian Carroll has been a partner and colleague of so many of us. He was instrumental in the early formation of WACF, helping to bring together agencies providing residential, foster care, and preventive services. Brian’s leadership was crucial during the early days, helping with the formation of our corporation, bylaws, and creation of our original three division structure. His insight and experience serving on local and national boards was critical during this phase of our organization. From 2012 – 2017, Brian served as our Vice President and Public Policy Chair. He spent countless hours in Olympia meeting with DCYF leadership and key legislative stakeholders on behalf of WACF. In 2017 – 2019 Brian served as President of WACF. Throughout his service, Brian has been dedicated to providing excellent services to children and families through his own organization, Secret Harbor. This commitment was highlighted in 2012 when the national membership association Alliance for Children and Families presented Brian and Secret Harbor with the Alliance for Children and Families Agency of the Year award. Brian will truly be missed but we wish him all the best in retirement and consulting work.
