Jed Dews Named New Executive Director of HALOS
After an extensive nationwide search, HALOS is thrilled to announce that Jed Dews, Associate Director at Voices for Georgia’s Children, has accepted the position as Executive Director. Dews is set to begin his leadership role on April 17th, 2023.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to welcome Jed to HALOS,” said Chairman Randall Cercopely. “His years of experience advocating for children and managing multimillion dollar statewide initiatives will position HALOS to continue to be a national advocate for kinship care. I also want to thank Kim Clifton for her years of service and for giving a voice to caregivers and children not only in the Lowcountry, but across South Carolina and the nation.”
“I am thrilled to join the HALOS team and promote safe and nurturing homes for children in kinship care,” said Jed Dews. “HALOS leads the way in raising awareness for the more than 57,000 South Carolinian children who are in kinship care and empowering kinship caregivers in the tri-county area, South Carolina and the nation at large. Our collective voice makes a difference for these children and their courageous caregivers.”
Current Executive Director, Kim Clifton, has served in this leadership role for 17 years. Under her tenure, the South Carolina Department of Social Services has partnered with HALOS to recognize and acknowledge the obstacles kinship families face and provide specific services and resources for those families. In the interim, HALOS’ Director of Philanthropy, Jennifer Richard, will serve as the Executive Director.
