It is with great pleasure that the Board of Directors of No More Stolen Childhood announces that Katie Cashman has joined our organization as Executive Director effective June 7, 2021.

We are confident that Katie’s many talents and collaborative and energetic approach, paired with her extensive leadership experience in non-profit organizations will help us in our mission to engage all communities in the prevention of and healing from child sexual abuse.

Katie’s leadership experience includes over ten years with Springboard Community Services, formally Family and Children’s Services of Central Maryland, where she held senior leadership roles in quality compliance and program operations. Katie’s career demonstrates her passionate commitment to serving those who have been marginalized, traditionally underserved and are vulnerable to victimization. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from Towson University and attended post baccalaureate studies in Gerontology at McDaniel College.

In her new role as Executive Director, Katie will work closely with our committed Board of Directors, staff, community partners and all stakeholders to move our mission forward. Katie is taking the helm of No More Stolen Childhoods as we are engaged in a rigorous strategic planning process designed to both bring the organization into our next chapter and enhance our work. Katie will continue to maintain the operational strength of the organization to ensure the highest quality of program delivery.

As a native of Carroll County who has spent the better part of the last decade overseeing regional programming throughout Central Maryland, Katie is familiar with the unique challenges that many non-profits experience. Katie values the power of partnership and leveraging existing resources to grow and increase access to services and develop innovative programming while maintaining financial viability and long term sustainability.

The Board also extends its deep appreciation to Dave Pittenger, who served as Interim Executive Director during the transition. Dave brought a wealth of experience in non-profit executive management to the organization in his tenure and we are thrilled that he will continue his engagement with our organization in a volunteer advisory role. Dave and the staff and partners of No More Stolen Childhoods have provided excellent support and service during this time, allowing us an opportunity to recruit and retain Katie as our new Executive Director.

Please join me us welcoming Katie to her new role as Executive Director. The Board of Directors is deeply committed to working with Katie to ensure her successful leadership as No More Stolen Childhoods enters its next chapter.
