ChildSavers’ Newest Astyra Board Member

Our Vice President of Operations, Melissa Silver, has been appointed to the ChildSavers Board of Directors.

Astyra has been a supporter of the organization for many years and has hosted events, including AstyraFEST, to raise donations to support ChildSavers.

ChildSavers’ mission is to address the mental health and developmental needs of children, mainly those who have experienced trauma. Martha Patteson Branch founded the nonprofit organization in 1924 in memory of one of Richmond’s first pediatricians Dr. McGuire Newton.

Melissa looks forward to helping lead ChildSavers to achieving greater success!

Tied To Greatness 2018

Izaiah and Ken
Our CEO, Ken Ampy, joined with the local organization Partnership for the Future for his second time to help provide high school males with a valuable lesson.
The one day event began with Mr. Alex Ellis’ powerful message to “never underestimate the power of your image.” Mr. Ellis has been featured on CNN, Black Enterprise, The 700 Club, BET and the Steve Harvey Morning Show for his influential speaking. He uses his experiences and knowledge to educate others on how to be successful.
Ken participated by speaking with and mentoring his Varina High School protégé, Izaiah, and teaching him how to properly tie a tie. This experience serves as a gateway, leading the high schoolers towards a professional life path.
Partnership for the Future’s focus is to help high school students with limited resources transition from high school to become successful, contributing members of our community.
