The Board of Trustees of the Cumberland Presbyterian Children's Home in Denton has named Jennifer Livings, a licensed professional counselor-supervisor, as interim president starting Feb. 1.
Cumberland Presbyterian Children's Home is a nonprofit agency established in 1904. It handles hundreds of clients annually through four programs serving children, families and the local community. The emergency shelter and basic residential care program protects children removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect and placed into the foster care system. It strengthens and equips families through the single-parent family program and a transitional housing program for families in crisis. It also supports the community through sliding-scale fee counseling services and parenting classes through Cumberland Family Services, its counseling clinic.
Livings replaces the current president, CEO and general counsel, the Rev. Richard Brown, who is retiring after 10 years of service to Cumberland. Brown served on the board for four years, as vice president and interim president for two years and as president, CEO and general counsel for four years.
