Amador County – Robin Valencia, executive director of the Amador County Child Abuse Prevention Council said she is stepping down this month and her organization will be taken over by First 5 Amador.

Valencia said: “I am leaving the council this month to go full-time with Amador Transit.” She said First 5 Amador, directed by Nina Machado, “will assume the coordination and administrative functions of the council effective July 1.

Valencia said the “upcoming changes will afford the stability, structure and infrastructure for the council to grow in new ways, and expand outreach and educational opportunities for First 5.” She said it was “a win-win for both organizations.”

She said: Working for the Child Abuse Prevention Council “has been a great and rewarding position for me. I feel so fortunate to have been paid to do work for a cause I am so passionate about, to meet and work with so many wonderful people in our community and, I am proud of the accomplishments we have made over the last seven years.”

She was also excited about the “new challenges and opportunities with Amador Transit, working to increase the accessibility of public transportation for our community.”
