Natalie Milom new Executive Director of SAFFT

There is a change of leadership in one of Forsyth County's well-known, non profits.  Brian and Ashley Anderson are stepping down from their respective roles as executive director and development director to spend more time with family and focus on other businesses.


Brian Anderson stated " Since its founding in 2009, Ashley and I have poured our hearts into SAFFT and what we have both received back doesn't even fall in comparison".  "We are incredibly grateful and humbled by the support shown to us and to SAFFT over the many years and the encouragement we've encountered as we transitions to other endeavors."

The Andersons, who have served as forster parents, began SAFFT in 2009.  They both realized they saw the brokenness in the system and the lack of good foster homes in the area.  The non profit now serves over 800 children, operates three centers in the state and offers services including supervised visitation, parenting classes, trauma-informed counseling and comprehensive foster parent support. 

Milom has a background in child welfare and holds a master's degree in social work.  The Anderson's believe that Natalie is the righ person to lead this organization to the next level.

Milom states " I am honored, excited and ready to lead SAFTT into the next phase of growth, community collaboration and outreach".  " We owe the children and familes of Georgia our absolute best efforts and I am excited to work together to bring about lasting impact that continues to propel the child welfare community forward."
