Anaheim, CA. (March 26, 2018) The Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center announces that the Board of Directors has appointed Adrienne Lamar Snider as the new Executive Director of Operations for the non-profit organization.
Throughout her career, Adrienne Lamar Snider has worked to advance social justice and economic empowerment by working with programs to ensure sound fiscal, programmatic, and administrative oversight.
