• Nancy Fulton, Chief Executive Officer

    Nancy Fulton joined the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches as its
    CEO in October of 2013. With more than twenty years of mental health experience, Nancy is committed to the highest level of quality care and service to the community. Before joining the ASYR, she served as regional clinical director at the Pointe Outpatient Behavioral Healthcare in Hot Springs. She also worked for APS Healthcare for nearly five years as the quality manager for Arkansas, where she directed all internal and external quality and regulatory compliance functions.

    Nancy received her bachelor’s degree from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro and a master’s of social work from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She is also a licensed certified social worker (LCSW) by the Arkansas Board of Social Work.

    “I am excited and honored to join the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches as Chief Executive Officer,” said Mrs. Fulton. “Throughout my professional career and volunteerism, I have seen the pain that many Arkansas youth have experienced. Many children and teens, who are referred for mental health services, involved in juvenile courts, or placed in DHS custody, find themselves in those situations through no true fault of their own but because of repeated failures of their family systems. I join you in the effort to alleviate the pain these children and teens experience by providing them with loving, supportive, safe, and nurturing homes.”
