United Community Welcomes Leah Fraley

Leah Fraley, Chief Executive Officer

Leah Fraley, the new CEO at United Community, brings a wealth of experience and a fierce dedication to advocating for families and children. Leah’s personal and professional journey has been marked by a relentless pursuit of justice and support for those most vulnerable in our communities.

Leah’s passion for family and child advocacy has been evident throughout her career. From her most recent role as CEO of Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) of Northern Virginia, her experience leading the Marketing and Development team at the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children, to her time helping all families access affordable healthcare at Holy Cross Health and leading the United Way in Western Maryland to bring about lasting change in education, income, and health,  Leah has tirelessly worked with industry leaders to address the root causes of issues affecting families, children and communities.

With a deep understanding of the lived experiences of those she serves, Leah’s commitment to changing outcomes for children and families is reflected in her involvement in various organizations, including serving on the Board of Families Forward Virginia and co-chairing a Steering Committee to develop the strategic plan on the prevention of child abuse and neglect across the Commonwealth.

Outside of her professional endeavors, Leah finds solace in long walks with her husband and new granddaughter and navigating the joys and challenges of her four boys and two King Charles Spaniels.

Leah is honored to be at the helm of United Community and looks forward to working with the Board and staff to continue to build thriving communities and to strive toward the vision to end multi-generational poverty.
