Kaci Perry has been named the executive director of the Covington County Child Advocacy Center.

She began work on Monday.

Perry said she had a lot to learn but was excited about her new job.

“I see it more of a ministry,” she said. “I’m going to be there for the families (of abused children) and children of the county, and be a resource.”

Perry, who worked at Andalusia Regional Hospital prior to taking the job as executive director said one of the things she loved about her job as human resources director was that she got to connect with people and see families flourish.

She and her husband, Mark, are parents to three boys – Reed, 5, Ryan, 3, and Rollin, 5 months.

Mark is the pastor at Red Oak Baptist Church.

Perry said she grew up in the Harmony Community and is a graduate of Troy University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in business.



Perry said she’s excited about the impact the organization can have on the lives of those affected by child abuse.

She’s looking forward to being the face of the center and said she will handle all administrative duties as well as be the family advocate.

“I’ll be a guiding light,” she said. “And help families with resources. I’ll come along side and help them.”

Perry said anyone who wishes to report child abuse to the CAC can call 334-488-5153.
