Kim Parker, EdD, MSW

Co-founder and Executive Director

As a young refugee girl in search of freedom, my family and I were homeless and stateless for eleven months in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. In 1979, a small Christian church in Texas sponsored my family to immigrate to America. Today, I am a licensed clinical social worker, former therapist in private practice in Texas, and the co-founder of a new Christian nonprofit organization called the Association of Christians in Health and Human Services (ACHHS). More importantly, I have been called to be a witness of the saving grace and hope found in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. But this very message of God’s love and goodness is muzzled in our worldly culture today.

This past decade, my colleagues and I have seen identity politics influence our professional organizations, including those serving Christians in social work, counseling, psychology, nursing, healthcare, and human services. Our professions have been greatly impacted by postmodern perspectives and ideology that run counter to the message of truth and grace found in the Biblical worldview. While we strive for excellent and ethical care, ACHHS seeks to remain steadfast in our nine core convictions. The beliefs about our human creation, spiritual identity, and God’s merciful love enable Christians to persevere in serving clients and patients in a world of hardships and immense suffering. Will you please join us in making a positive difference in the world today?
