aafsAfrican American Family Services (AAFS) last week announced the resignation of its executive director Lissa Jones, who led the organization as the Chief Executive Officer for the past nine years.

Corporate executive T. J. Ticey, former AAFS Board Chair, was named interim Executive Director.

In a statement to the press, the AAFS  Board of Directors  said it “reluctantly accepted” the resignation and praised Jones for dedicated and superb leadership.

Jones brought stability to the organization that resulted in increased client satisfaction. Improved certification of AAFS Mental Health providers made AAFS one of the premier providers of culturally competent mental health services in the Twin Cities, the Board said.

AAFS said it has assured all of its stakeholders there will be no lapse in the quality of client services or in meeting the agency’s contractual obligations. “Under the leadership of our interim Executive Director and the extraordinary expertise, skill and commitment of staff, our clients will continue to experience the highest level of quality services, loyalty and advocacy on their behalf,” the Board said in a press release.
