Stella Prather, APR

Director of Community Engagement

Stella Prather is a storyteller. In fact, she is often a voice for the children and families we serve, sharing their stories of hope and restoration with ministry partners, community leaders and the general public. Her own journey includes an education on the Gulf Coast where Stella earned a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations from the University of Florida in 1990. In 2010, she joined the ABC team and quickly became a valuable part of our ministry. Stella serves in public relations, communications, media relations, electronic media, social media and fundraising. She received her national accreditation in public relations in 2015. Stella and her husband, Bret, have been married for 17 years and have two sons. Although she enjoys reading, shopping and water sports, cheering on the boys (baseball, football, basketball and track!) makes her a full-time fan. Contact Stella at
