Susan Morgan Named CARE Executive Director

Jan Osborn’s tenure as CARE interim executive director was brief. 2016 CARE Board Chair Paula White Hayes just sent word that Susan Morgan will take over as CARE’s executive director on Thursday, March 1.

According to Paula, “Susan brings more than two decades of nonprofit leadership and management to CARE, with most of her experience being in the drug/alcohol prevention and intervention arena. Her wealth of knowledge in program design, grant writing and partnership coalition will be invaluable to CARE. During her tenure with the East Texas Council of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Susan grew the agency from $640,000 to $2.1 million and increased its outreach to over 23 counties. She is recognized state wide for her advocacy on behalf of the addiction and recovery community. Her passion for helping families and children affected by addiction is evident the minute you meet her.”

A graduate of Baylor University, she earned her master’s degree in education from Sam Houston State University.
