Angela Green serves as the regional administrator for the Administration for Children and Families’ Region 5. In this capacity, she oversees the high-priority human services initiatives of the agency, administrative leadership and support for ACF’s Chicago staff and human service emergency planning, preparedness and response.
Green began her social work career in a youth-development setting for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis. To further her growth in child welfare, Green obtained her Master of Social Work degree from Indiana University in 1999. In April 1999 she was selected by Children’s Bureau, Inc., to develop, create and manage the state of Indiana’s first community-based child protection project entitled Neighborhood Alliance for Child Safety in Indianapolis, Indiana. Under her leadership the program expanded from providing free quality services to 125 individuals within one zip code area the first year in operation to a little over 5,000 throughout the county by the sixth year. This project became the model program for the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) with mandated statewide replication.
In March 2006 she accepted the challenge to become a part of the executive management team for DCS where she served as the deputy director of practice support. In her role as deputy director she lead the direction of policy, functionality of Indiana’s child welfare information system, practice validation through a performance and quality improvement and formalization of data management for the department. During her tenure as deputy director, Indiana’s child welfare policy manual was completely reconstructed and updated. In addition, she spearheaded the integration of a new continuous quality improvement process that included a multi-level systemic response to qualitative and quantitative data.
Prior to becoming a regional administrator, she served as one of 10 regional program managers for the federal child welfare agency, ACF’s Children’s Bureau. In this role she provided leadership and direction in managing the approval, monitoring and technical guidance for over $1.4 billion in child welfare funding to states and tribes for their foster care, adoption, child protection and child welfare services.
Green holds a Master of Social Work degree from Indiana University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Indianapolis.
