Alicia Grant has had over a decade of experience in the non-profit sector, working for both domestic and international organizations, and has served on multiple Financial and Administrative Boards. She has always had a heart and a passion for the "least of these."
Her story is a unique one. She was born in Guatemala during the days of heavy guerilla warfare and was adopted as a baby into an incredible and loving Christian home in California. She no longer considers herself one of the "lucky ones", but believes that children in each country can be blessed with the reality of having a loving, safe home, allowing for future generations of children to grow up in their country free from fear and oppression. This hope and future is one she intends to give to as many children as she can.
During college, Alicia served as a hospital Chaplain at Loma Linda University Hospital. Often assigned to the Pediatric ICU, she learned both the depth and the width of suffering as well as compassion. Alicia received her degree in English, Linguistics. She also has extensive experience in the field of Applied Behavior Anaylsis and has worked as a Behavior Therapist for children with autism.
