Tamassee CEO

Lori Bailey has had more than 20 years of experience working to protect and equip children and youth and to support and empower families to thrive.  Her passion is to engage individuals (staff and volunteers) and communities in support of healthy children, youth and families.  She believes meaningful support of individuals and families in crisis requires that we address the well-being of the whole person – physical health, mental health, educational needs, social connections, and spirituality.
