Adia Holmes, MA

Adia Holmes has over 13 years experience in the child welfare and social services field advocating for children and families in underserved communities. Through her work with Franklin County Children Services and Family & Children First Council, she has served as a liaison, facilitator and tireless child welfare advocate working with delinquent youth and high-risk families. In these roles, she has facilitated teams of professionals around the specific needs of these families as well as participated in educational planning and IEP meetings and the development of those plans, for a myriad of students throughout several districts in Central Ohio. Adia is currently serving as the Compliance Manager for The Breathing Association HEAP Department providing training and education to staff in line with state guidelines as well as agency’s best practices. Adia has a Bachelors degree in psychology and a Masters degree in counseling from Hampton University. Her passion for the underprivileged and underserved comes from her awareness of the disproportionately skewed outcomes for these families. In addition, to the sobering fact that these very skewed outcomes could have been her own stark reality. In all her work, Adia strives to ignite change and dismantle injustice with the truth.
