Nonprofit Capacity Building and Family Strengthening Programs Consultant

Maurice Moore is President and Founder of Capacity Development Associates, LLC. Before establishing Capacity Development Associates in 2010, he worked for 17 years as a program officer over fatherhood programs for the Baltimore-based Annie E. Casey Foundation. Moore brings more than 30 years’ experience in human services to AMTC clients, primarily in fatherhood and juvenile and criminal justice. His experience includes work in some of the country’s toughest cities, including Chicago, IL; Newark, NJ; Wilmington, DE; Milwaukee, WI; Atlanta, GA; and Baltimore, MD.

Moore has been a social worker with the Illinois Department of Public Assistance, manager of an Illinois Department of Corrections serious juvenile offender program, director of a National Council on Crime and Delinquency violent juvenile offender project; deputy director of the State of Delaware’s juvenile justice agency; and a consultant to the U.S Department of Justice (Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention). These experiences combined with his years at the Casey Foundation, with a focus on leading the foundation’s fatherhood development efforts, bring him skills to assist AMTC clients with responding appropriately to grant announcements, providing technical assistance in managing grants, and helping to advocate in the areas of juvenile justice and especially in responsible fatherhood.

In addition to supporting policy work in the areas of juvenile justice, child welfare, early childhood, and child support, Moore also has skills to assist AMTC human service practitioners, researchers, and others on methods of achieving effective outcomes for residents (particularly fathers) of low-income communities.

Moore holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Southern Illinois University and a master’s degree in sociology from Eastern Illinois University.
