Seven years later, the Against All Odds Foundation maintains a full-time staff of 12 and a part-time staff of over 150 employees. Under her leadership, the organization has provided free services to numerous families in New Jersey. It has earnings of over $1 million in unrestricted revenue and has secured contracts from a range of institutions, including state and local governments, other non-profit organizations and business entities. Christine’s success has made her a leader among her peers in the non-profit, social service and educational arenas. She is also a public speaker, writer and role model for young women.
Newark Mayor Cory Booker shared about Christine, “We are proud of [Carter] who gives hope, empowerment and love to our beloved brick city.” In addition to overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Against All Odds Foundation, Christine consults both non-profits and business leaders on successful program strategies from development, implementation and expansion.
In observance of Black History Month, Christine appeared on the Wendy Williams show to kick off Procter and Gamble's My Black is Beautiful campaign. The campaign celebrates the diverse collective beauty of African American women. To learn more about Against All Odds Foundation, visit http://againstalloddsnj.org/.
