Selma N. Ward begins as Chief Executive Officer!

On July 1, 2020, The Children’s Center of Hamden welcomed Selma Ward as our new Chief Executive Officer. The Board of Directors did an extensive search to find the most qualified candidates and chose Selma, after a rigorous interview process, for her accomplished leadership skills, finance background and overall passion for helping others.  Selma is guided by her vision, “My vision has always been to help kids build a foundation for their future success. I don’t want to see anyone defined by their past experiences: everyone deserves guidance, support, and education.”  Please join us in welcoming Selma and in celebrating our 1st woman CEO since the founding of The Children’s Center in 1833!
