Eric Bellamy speaks at Home Visiting Summit 2019

Eric Bellamy was named a recipient of the One in a Million Award by Multiplying Good, a New York-based organization offering programs that help individuals discover their potential through service to others. For nearly 50 years, Multiplying Good has generated ripples of good by igniting and honoring public service passions.

Bellamy, the chief partnership engagement officer for Children’s Trust, provides strategic leadership for emerging prevention programs such as Family Resource Centers while continuing to oversee the home visiting program. He joined the team in 2010 and played a key role in building a statewide home visiting infrastructure that is well-respected nationally and across our state.

In honoring Bellamy, Multiplying Good cited “his hard work and dedication” and how he “provides his invaluable time, talents, and resources” in support of children and families across South Carolina: “His selfless efforts create real change across the Palmetto State. We truly value his commitment to multiply good.”

When the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) funding was up for renewal by the U.S. Congress in 2018, Bellamy testified before the House of Representatives Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Resources to help ensure continued support for home visiting across the nation. He also was instrumental in the expansion of the Strengthening Families Program across the state.

Bellamy currently serves on the board of directors for the Association of State and Tribal Home Visiting Initiatives (ASTHVI), a two-year term that began in 2020.
