Meet some of the people that help make our organization exceptional.


Beth Malanoski

would really like to use this as Beth's photo but is quality enough

When the opportunity to become Executive Director at The Exceptional Foundation of Atlanta came about, Beth knew it was a chance to bring together her skills and experience with a cause deeply rooted in her life. Beth and her husband have three children. John, their middle child, and heart of the family, has autism and recently aged out of public schools at age 22. Beth and her family are living the aging out experience that EFAtl seeks to remedy. Beth has 35 years of corporate and non-profit experience building communities, connecting people with available resources, and developing and implementing programs and events.
