Established in 1983, CITC administers 35 culturally-appropriate programs designed to assist individuals and families achieve their endless potential.
Prior to that, Kelly served with the American Red Cross of Alaska for 9 years in the capacities of Community Relations Manager (2001-2005) and Director of Development (2005-2010).
Kelly serves in several volunteer capacities with the American Red Cross, including membership on the Advanced Public Affairs Team, acting as a Red Cross spokesperson with national media during high visibility disasters and is an instructor for International Humanitarian Law. In addition, Kelly is a member of the International Response Team of the American Red Cross, and has been assigned to relief operations in Kosovo, Turkey, Sri Lanka, and Haiti.
Kelly served in the US Peace Corps as a Health Educator in Cameroon, West Africa from 1992-1995. She is an Honorary Commander with Elmendorf Air Force Base and in 2005 was awarded the Top 40 Under 40 by the Alaska Journal of Commerce. Kelly received a BA in Political Science from the University of Maine, and is currently working towards her MA in Philanthropy and Development from St. Mary's University Minnesota.
Kelly is a firm believer in the power of philanthropy to strengthen communities -- and loves the quote by Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever does."

Asking for help: Joe Mathis, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross of Alaska, listens to Kelly Hurd, community relations manager for the group, talk about how the nonprofit service organization needs support.
"These big disasters bring disasters to local chapters," said Kelly Hurd, community relations manager of American Red Cross of Alaska.
The Asian tsunami is the last straw," Hurd said.
"We cannot keep any of the money," Hurd said.
Hurd said many people have the misperception that the American Red Cross receives federal funding for its programs.
"In 1900, the U.S. Congress granted the American Red Cross a charter, making the volunteer organization responsible for providing services to members of the U.S. armed forces and relief to disaster victims at home and abroad," Hurd said.
"The charter mandates that the organization provide certain services to the American people, but the American Red Cross is not a government agency.Nor does it receive federal funding on a regular basis," she added.
Hurd said 90 percent of the chapter's funding comes from private donations.
"Each year, the American Red Cross of Alaska provides emergency assistance to about 1,400 Alaskans that have lost everything in a disaster," Hurd said.
