Groundbreaking Women: Ashley Hurd, Executive Director, Marin Foster Care Association, as featured in Marin Living

May 2024

Offering stability and support for vulnerable children.


What is it about your business that makes it groundbreaking? As executive director of Marin Foster Care Association and a foster parent myself, my focus is on bringing stability and hope to our community’s most vulnerable children. We strive to empower care-givers with support services and deliver resources that their foster children need to thrive.

What groundbreaking resources do you offer? My goal is to remove any barriers for foster parents, so that they will continue saying “yes” to a new foster child placement. Our Community Resource Center carries everything that a child needs to settle into a new home — for free.

How are you thinking outside the box? Marin’s Community Resource Center delivers critical support to families, so we have worked with local teams to replicate the model in Sonoma, Contra Costa, Solano and San Francisco counties. Now, hundreds of resource families can benefit.
