The Warren Center, a nonprofit agency providing professional evaluations, therapy services, and support to children with developmental delays and disabilities, has selected a new Chief Advancement Officer.
Asriel Eford was promoted to the executive position, where she will lead the coordinated efforts of the organization’s Development, Marketing and Communications teams. She will provide a strategic vision for programs that drive advancement and communications to sustain and grow revenues from all constituents, including individual donors, corporate and foundation giving, planned giving, and special events.
Founded in 1968, the Warren Center serves over 1,000 children each week as well as their families. Services include speech, occupational and physical therapy, developmental services, and nutrition as well as family education and support. The Warren Center’s Early Childhood Intervention Program serves the northern half of Dallas County in 48 ZIP codes.
Eford has more than 20 years of experience in developing innovative strategies and community support for the organizations she has served. Most recently, she held the role of Chief Marketing Officer at The Warren Center. She led a multi-year campaign to generate interest in and support for The Warren Center’s early-childhood intervention-oriented mission, resulting in a 33% increase in children enrolled.
Prior to her work at The Warren Center, Eford held communications roles at Interstate Batteries. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications from Troy University and a master’s degree in Multimedia Journalism from Virginia Commonwealth University.
“Asriel is demonstrably the best of the best,” says Amy Spawn, Chief Executive Officer of The Warren Center. “She is uniquely suited to continue the transformative coalition of local and regional support and messaging for The Warren Center. She is passionate about the mission and communities we serve and already has had a profound impact on our organization which benefits thousands of children every year.”
