Cate Fopma, Community Liason

Cate Fopma has worked for 30 years in social service administration, coalition building and advocacy. With a bachelor’s degree in urban administration from the University of Cincinnati, Cate served as the Ohio executive director of prison fellowship and began work in substance abuse prevention as executive director of CASA in Cincinnati. During that time, she did speaking and training, including a pilot program at the Cincinnati Police Academy and a plenary speech at a national substance abuse conference given by the Office of the President. After her two sons reached college age, she adopted two children from the foster care system. Zach, who she adopted at four months old, was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at age 7. Since that time, Cate’s advocacy efforts have been focused on developmental disabilities. She’s been with Ken Anderson Alliance since the beginning and is excited about the growth of KAA. In her spare time, Cate enjoys music and paper crafting. Cate and her husband, Gary Greer, share nine grandchildren. Her family is the joy of her life.
