New Home-Based Program Director

I have been a Home-Based Caseworker with The Youth Service Bureau for 7 years. I have recently taken the position of the new Home-Based Program Director. I am beyond excited to take on this new role and continue to build this program in our communities.

I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Social Work from Olivet Nazarene University in 2013. After graduation, I enjoyed working with children at an Autism Clinic, but I desired to work with children and families within the DCS system.

In 2015, I entered into the casework position at YSB where I quickly learned how passionate and caring the YSB agency and workers were for our clients. I enjoy working with all clients from the little children, to teens, to the parents. This program allows us to help our clients take steps to better their situations and for them to realize and achieve their greatest potential.

As Program Director, I am excited to be able to continue working with clients and also to continue building a passionate home-based team so that we may be able to have an even greater impact in our communities. 

Home-Based Family Services are intervention services that work with families involved with DCS or probation. A wide variety of services from Parent-Aid, Casework, Therapy, Supervised Visits, and Family Preservation help preserve intact families and support families as they seek reunification. Strength-based and trauma-informed services help build family resiliency to assist our clients in reaching their greatest potential.

Healthy Families would like to introduce our new Family Support Specialist, Tina Myers.

My name is Tina Myers. I am 31 years old. I have 3 younger sisters and 1 brother. My husband Greg and I adopted two children in 2019 Macie (6) and Quentin (5). We also just had our baby girl Elena (Raynie) in January. Our animal family consists of 2 dogs, 2 rabbits, and 11 chickens.


Our family likes to spend our free time camping, fishing, and traveling. We have been camping at Paradise Pointe for 10 years. Our goal is to make a home away from home where all of our family can make fun and precious memories that will last for years.


In my previous careers, I have either worked in Customer Service or worked with young children. Throughout my life, I have found that my biggest joy is helping others whether they’re older or younger. I believe that at some point, everyone needs help, even those who are afraid to ask for it. That’s one of the reasons why I am so excited to be a part of this program. Not only will I be able to help others with the help and training I receive from this team, but I, myself will also learn new ideas and new information
and get other perspectives along this journey.

Healthy Families would like to introduce our new Family Support Specialist, Ashlyn Maloy.

I am a 22-year-old who graduated from IUPUI, May of 2021. I received a Bachelor of General Studies with a concentration in Social and Behavioral Science, as well as a minor in psychology and a minor in sociology. Prior to attending IUPUI, I graduated from Union City Jr./Sr. High School in 2017. My husband and I just returned to the area last year. We will celebrate our first wedding anniversary this Halloween.

This summer, we welcomed our first baby into our family. Before we had our son, Beau, we already had three other babies; two cats and a dog. When I’m not at work, you’ll most likely find me spending time with my family, listening to crime podcasts, cooking, doing some kind of craft, or playing Animal Crossing. Even though we’ve only had about three months with our son, I feel he has taught me a lot of valuable information that I can use in my role as a Family Support Specialist.

As an FSS, I hope to continuously grow and expand my knowledge to be as helpful as possible for each family. I’m excited to be a part of the Youth Service Bureau and find a fulfilling career working with Healthy Families!
