Child Protection Coalition Welcomes New Executive Director

The Child Protection Coalition welcomes new Executive Director, Nellie Kelly! Kelly joined the CPC team on October 24, 2016.

Kelly has 14 years of experience serving Tulsa nonprofits, including the American Red Cross, American Heart Association and Transitional Living Centers of Oklahoma. Before coming to the Coalition, she worked as marketing director and waiting child coordinator for Dillon International, a nonprofit international adoption agency.

Kelly’s interest in helping children and families began in 1999 when, while working as a reporter at the Tulsa World, she became a foster parent for the Department of Human Services. She continued fostering until the fall of 2015, when her fourth adoption was finalized.

Kelly is committed to working with community partners so that abused and neglected children receive the protection, justice and healing they deserve.
