NCCD is very pleased to have William C. Bell, PhD, president and CEO of Casey Family Programs, serve as keynote speaker on opening day of our upcoming 2016 NCCD Conference on Children, Youth, and Families. Casey Family Programs, with which NCCD has worked closely for many years, is the largest operating foundation in the United States that focuses on safely decreasing the need for foster care. As president and CEO, Dr. Bell is responsible for the foundation’s vision, mission, and strategies. 

Dr. Bell has worked in the human services field more than 35 years—15 of those with Casey. Prior to joining Casey, he was commissioner of the New York City Administration for Children’s Services.

With a PhD in social welfare from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, Dr. Bell has served on numerous boards and committees and garnered many honors and awards recognizing him for his tireless work toward improving the lives of vulnerable children. Most recently, Dr. Bell received the Pride of Our Community Award from the Coalition for Hispanic Family Services in New York City (2015) and was selected as the 2014 James A. Joseph Lecturer by the Association of Black Foundation Executives.
