The Community Assistance Center (CAC), a hyper-local human services organization serving Sandy Springs and Dunwoody, welcomes Amy Frizzell, MPA as its new Development Director.

With more than 24 years in nonprofit development, Frizzell has extensive experience in purpose-driven philanthropy, combining proficiency in fundraising and relationship-building with impactful and authentic nonprofit leadership. CAC’s Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers are excited to welcome her on board and look forward to working together to help neighbors in need.

“We are pleased and excited to welcome Amy Frizzell in her new role as Development Director,” states Francis K. Horton, III, CAC’s Chief Executive Officer. Frizzell is taking over from long-time Development Director Pam Jones, who is retiring at the end of January.

“The timing of this transition from one Development leader to another could not be better,” Horton continues. “Our new Development leader has had the benefit of receiving institutional knowledge from the person that originated the role in our organization.” CAC looks forward to a smooth transition that builds on existing community relationship efforts.
Frizzell brings decades of nonprofit development experience to her new role at CAC. She earned her BA from Florida International University in her hometown of Miami, beginning her nonprofit career in public relations. She later enhanced her skills by earning her MPA from the University of Illinois.

Frizzell has spent the last two decades spearheading fundraising for Atlanta-area nonprofits such as The Salvation Army, Youth Villages, and Usher’s New Look, where her goal-driven development efforts have netted millions of dollars in funds raised for worthy causes.

Frizzell is looking forward to digging into her new role. “CAC has a great track record of providing appropriate help in appropriate ways, and I look forward to furthering its mission with my experience and skills,” she shares.
