Tiffany Kelly was born in Vero Beach, FL. She is employed with St. Luke’s United Methodist Church’s Circles ® Campaign as a Circles Coach in their quest to transform the lives of individuals experiencing poverty. She is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Morning After Center for Hope and Healing, Inc. (TMAC,) a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and is a state-level advocate for parents that are abused by minor children. The organization pushed heavily for legislation to help these families, and in 2017, a bill entitled Support for Parental Victims of Child Domestic Violence became law in the Florida Legislature, the first of its kind in the country. She is also a speaker and facilitator.
Ms. Kelly has viewed poverty from the lens of experiencing generational poverty, to working for agencies that primarily service individuals in poverty. She has an extensive social service background, with experience advocating for, teaching, presenting to, and coaching populations that are underserved. She is knowledgeable of HUD subsidized housing programs and regulations, and possesses certifications in Public Housing Management and Housing Quality Standards. She is passionate about the communities she serves, particularly in the role of advocating for under-served, under-resourced communities, and the people who reside in them. This work has led to the moniker of “Miss U.S.A.,” or Urban Stabilization Advocate. She also works to bring awareness to the resources that are available for children dealing with physical, emotional, and behavioral disabilities and for their parents. Her motto is, “if you don’t know, you won’t grow,” and, using information and tools she gathers, assists individuals in creating a process to reach their goals by using the path of least resistance.
While Ms. Kelly was employed as a beauty professional, a client disclosed to her that she was being abused by her husband. That conversation led to Ms. Kelly obtaining the Florida CORE Competency Domestic Violence Certification and facilitating Cut It Out, a training to teach salon professionals how to recognize the signs of domestic violence in their clients, respond appropriately, and safely refer them to help.
Ms. Kelly graduated from Edgewater High School in Orlando, FL, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management from Warner Southern University with a focus on Public Administration, and is currently working toward a Master’s degree in Studies in Human Behavior from Capella University. She is a member of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
