Please join us in welcoming Amanda Pump in her new role within Child & Family Service Executive Leadership Team as the Chief Program Officer!
You may know Amanda most recently as the Director of O`ahu Programs for CFS, but she has served CFS in several roles over the past 12 years. Amanda has had great success growing signature programs at CFS such as Mālama Ola and Hale O Ulu and implementing the groundbreaking, anti-poverty model of care – Transition to Success™ (TTS) – into programs throughout the islands, which is helping Hawaii’s families break the cycle of intergenerational poverty.
“Amanda is a humble and passionate leader, supported by our Island Directors and her colleagues,” says Karen Tan, LCSW, President & CEO of CFS. “I have the utmost confidence in her ability to help move the organization forward with her ambition, skills, and strength,” says Tan.
Amanda received a Master of Science in Human Service in 2008 and has worked in Connecticut and North Carolina before deciding to call Hawai`i her forever home. At CFS, she has served as a Therapist in the Comprehensive Counseling and Support Services Program, a Clinical Coordinator in the Performance Department, Program Administrator for the Healing from Trauma program. Most recently, as the Director of O`ahu Programs, she oversaw and managed programs within all five focus areas of the organization: Caring for Keiki, Healing from Trauma, Empowering Youth, Honoring Kupuna, and Social Enterprises.
Specializing in child abuse and neglect, mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence, and sex abuse counseling, Amanda is poised to bring about positive change in our communities. Her fierce dedication to the people of Hawai`i doesn’t stop in the office. She regularly participates in fundraising events, advocacy and volunteer opportunities. She currently serves on several nonprofit Board of Directors and in leadership and in advisory roles.
