Barbara Howard

Executive Administrator & Aftercare Director

On my career path to Amarillo Children’s Home, I was the Middle School Director of Amarillo Young Life’s “Wyldlife” and College/Career Director at First Presbyterian Church of Amarillo. My life-long passion is to invest in the lives of kids and young adults. I’m also compassionate about connecting others to a community that is making a difference and to guide them through the process. In my position as ACH Executive Administrator & Aftercare Director, I’m given the opportunity to work from the skills I developed in my prior careers and from my passion. I’m humbled and grateful to be part of an amazing team of coworkers, who not only believe in the mission of Amarillo Children’s Home, but also eagerly live it out.

Ring the bells that can still ring. Forget your perfect offering. There’s a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.
