Tabitha Charlton is a licensed attorney and business development professional with more than twenty years of experience in the legal, marketing and business services industries. A certified mediator and experienced family law attorney, Tabitha is a passionate advocate in matters involving child welfare, domestic violence, and assisted reproduction. Having personally experienced the child welfare system as an older child and teen, Tabitha was determined to make a difference for older kids in the system. She previously worked as the Director of Community Outreach & Marketing for ESCAPE Family Resource Center in Houston, Texas, volunteered pro bono services to The Children’s Assessment Center, was selected to speak on a panel to new volunteers of Fort Bend CASA, and is the former Chair of the Crime Victims & Survivors Committee. Most recently, she served as a member of the Texas State Bar’s Child Abuse & Neglect Committee and Chaired a subcommittee to identify a mentoring program for older foster kids in Texas that would help them find permanent, loving homes. Her search led her to Kidsave and she has since worked tenaciously to develop the necessary collaborations and partnerships to launch the Texas Weekend Miracles program.
