Baltimore – Penn-Mar Human Services, the region’s leading provider of services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), is proud to announce that Angela Chambers-Hinton, Ed.D, has been hired as the nonprofit’s new director of consulting services.

Since its inception in 2020, Penn-Mar Consulting has continued to grow across the U.S., assisting 57 similar organizations in 11 states, offering diverse consulting projects, and designing custom programs depending on the situation, some of which extend over multiple years. Additionally, the team has conducted extensive Association of Community Rehabilitation Educators (ACRE) training sessions, serving staff from 91 organizations, and granting 242 nationally recognized ACRE certificates for Basic Level Employment Services Certification with Emphasis in Customized Employment.

In her new role, Chambers-Hinton will utilize her many years of expertise, both as an educator and practitioner, to continue growing the consulting practice. Her primary duties will include providing support to existing clients while expanding the division’s strategic reach. She will also represent Penn-Mar at regional and national conferences, and enhance ties with fellow providers, government agencies, and other peer organizations.

Most recently, Chambers-Hinton served as vice president of education and organizational learning for the National Center on Institutions & Alternatives (NCIA), a human services nonprofit serving those with disabilities, low income, and the underserved. Prior to NCIA, Chambers-Hinton was vice president of education services for Board of Child Care, a child welfare organization that provides foster care, education, group home care, and therapeutic services for children who have experienced trauma and behavioral difficulties, and are in need of out-of-home placement. She has a Doctorate in Education, Leadership and Special Education, from George Washington University.

“It’s an honor to be part of the Penn-Mar team,” says Chambers-Hinton. “The work of this organization has impacted so many lives across the region, and most recently, the entire country. Having the opportunity to build on that legacy of change, nurture key relationships, and broaden our reach is something I’m excited to continue and ultimately, help even more people to Live Courageously. Penn-Mar’s mission is also very personal to me as the mother of five children, two of whom have disabilities. They ignite my passion and commitment to this field.”

Chambers-Hinton succeeds long-time Director of Consulting Services Michael Shriver, who will continue to serve Penn-Mar in the role of private consultant. Shriver has been in the human services industry for nearly 40 years, including serving as CEO of Penn-Mar from 1985 to 2000, and CHANGE, Inc. CEO from 2015-2020. Following CHANGE’s merger with Penn-Mar in 2020, Michael assisted in the creation and management of Penn-Mar’s Consulting group and has been indispensable in helping the nonprofit provide support to more and more peer organizations.

“I’ve worked closely with Michael for most of my career and his dedication to the IDD community has been an inspiration,” says Penn-Mar CEO Greg Miller. “Mike has positioned our Consulting Division for continued growth, and Angela’s background is perfectly suited to take the reins and expand Penn-Mar’s reach, create new relationships, and advance our mission.”
