"Ignite what is soul inspiring."
Excited to activate coaching statewide, Lauren Morley Hutto, MSW, LSW, CPCC, ACC, joined the CWTS team at the Kempe Center in January 2014.

Through her experiences, Lauren has collaborated with public and private child welfare systems to advance best practices in family and community engagement—such as Differential Response, father engagement, and Partnering for Safety—through training, coaching, technical assistance, curriculum development, and research.
