Ada Causey ( -1975)

Causey was known for leadership in the field of child care in Alabama and throughout the southeastern states. She was widely recognized by national organizations and agencies such as the Child Welfare League of America and the United States Children's Bureau. For 31 years, she was the supervisor of the division of the child caring institutions and agencies in the Alabama State Department's Bureau of Child Welfare. Earlier she had worked in a county relief administration and had other positions in the Department of Public Welfare.

In her position she demonstrated her tremendous respect for licensing laws and the protection which they provide to the child, his family and the community. She made major contributions towards the development of rules and regulations implementing Alabama's licensing law for child care facilities. Her concept of licensing responsibility was not limited to enforcement of regulations; rather hers was a creative approach based on her commitment to helping the providers to want to provide good child care and to assist them in meeting requirements for a license. She worked with other state departments and church and community groups to assist all of them with their programs concerning children.

Causey was a native of Alabama. Her training in social work was from Tulane University. In her retirement she was honored by the Alabama Conference of Child Care Guidance Leadership and Understanding.
