Meet Our New CEO
Introducing Glynis Butler-Stone

CEO Transition: A New Era

After 23 years of distinguished service to the children of our region, early this month, David Ballard retired as CEO of the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento.

Beginning his career as a childcare worker in a group home in Los Angeles, David held numerous managerial and administrative positions prior his recruitment to helm the Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento in 1999. He led the agency through multiple expansions, oversaw the implementation of California’s Continuum of Care Reform and made lasting connections with many CRH alumni, staff and community members. Watch our commemorative video of David’s time at CRH, here!

CRH’s incoming CEO Glynis Butler-Stone has over 25 years of nonprofit child welfare, social service, health program management, and leadership experience. A third generation “Sacramentan” and die-hard Kings fan, she received her Masters Degree in Counselor Education from CSU Sacramento and is a 2008 graduate of the Sierra Health Leadership Program. In addition to her passionate dedication to working with children and families effected by trauma, Glynis brings experience in performance quality improvement, risk management and strategic planning.

Board members of the Receiving Home are enthusiastic about our choice of Glynis as CEO to lead CRH into a new era,” said Becky LaVally, president of the CRH Board of Directors. ”We have tremendous confidence in Glynis. She is an experienced leader in the field of foster care, with extensive knowledge of child abuse prevention, residential treatment, integrated service delivery, and the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. We remain deeply appreciative of the 23 years of committed service that David Ballard provided at the helm of CRH. We are grateful for his leadership and advocacy of CRH, as well as his foresight in bringing Glynis to the Receiving Home.

Virtual Support: CRH During COVID-19

As a nonprofit organization, we rely heavily on our supporters as well as third-party events in our community, to help us provide excellent care to the children and teenagers we serve. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our spring peer-to-peer fundraising events have been put on hold. To help navigate this transition, we are looking toward alternatives when encouraging our community to “come together” and help our vulnerable youth in the greater Sacramento area.

If you have a unique idea for social-distance appropriate events that our organization can host, please contact Alex Gonzalez at
