WASHINGTON, DC – America’s Service Commissions (ASC), the national association of state service commissions which leads, supports and elevates the state service network, congratulates Ms. Elizabeth Darling on her recent nomination by President Trump as Commissioner of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Ms. Darling is a longtime member of ASC and has served as Chair of ASC’s Board of Directors since September 2017. As President and CEO of OneStar Foundation, Texas’ state service commission, Ms. Darling has spent the past nine years focused on the needs of her home state and local Texas communities, including youth development engagement and strategies as related to AmeriCorps programming and education. Before coming to OneStar, Ms. Darling served as COO of the Corporation for National and Community Service in Washington, D.C.
“All of us at ASC are thrilled to learn of Liz Darling’s nomination as Commissioner of ACYF and enthusiastically applaud the President’s choice,” said Kaira Esgate, CEO of America’s Service Commissions. “Liz has been a smart, strategic, and influential leader within the state service commission network for many years, and will be a strong leader for youth and families once confirmed.”
Upon her confirmation by the United States Senate, Liz would oversee the $18 billion portfolio of programming related to child abuse and neglect prevention, foster care, youth development, adoption, runaway and homeless youth, teen pregnancy prevention, and family violence prevention, as reported by the Nonprofit Times.
Liz will continue to serve in her role as OneStar Foundation President/CEO in Austin, Texas until her confirmation.
