Staff and Volunteer Leaders

Serving with The CALL in Saline & Perry Counties

Jillian Battaglia, County Coordinator

Jillian started the journey of advocating for children and families in foster care and opened her home to children in the community of Clark County in 2021. She’s had several children pass through her home in just a few short months allowing her to realize the immediate and desperate need for foster families in her community. After serving as the County Coordinator for The CALL in Clark County for 2.5 years, her family transitioned back to their hometown in Saline County where she accepted the role of County Coordinator for The CALL in Saline and Perry Counties.

She and her husband Collin grew up in Bryant and they are very passionate and excited about serving back in their hometown community.

Taylor Brown, Family Support Coordinator

Taylor’s awareness of the need for foster families in Arkansas to love the vulnerable and hurting children and families in the foster care system took root in 2014. As she and her husband opened their home to these children the following year, a whole new and unexpected journey unfolded.  In early 2018, she joined our staff as the Family Support Coordinator for Saline & Perry Counties.

Bethany Hill, Family Support Coordinator

Serving children has been a passion of Bethany's for as long as she can remember. From working in early intervention to completing casework as a Family Service Worker with DCFS, the journey to serve has been ongoing. Foster care and adoption have played a vital role in Bethany's family. In March of 2023, Bethany joined The CALL in Saline and Perry Counties as a Family Support Coordinator with a focus on adoptive families.

Kim Poteat

Kim’s passion for fostering was birthed from watching family members around her caring for foster children. The impact this made sparked her passion for vulnerable children. When Kim and her husband discussed what their family would look like it always included adoption and foster care.  In 2019 Kim joined the Saline County CALL staff as the Administrative Assistant and in 2021 she accepted the role as the DCFS Liaison for The CALL Statewide office.
