Abigail G. Moore
HCCADA Chief Executive Officer

Abigail Moore has been a force in the nonprofit sector for more than 20 years, working in the Substance Use and Mental Health field. She received her Bachelors Degree from Texas Tech University in 1998 and worked for the Lubbock Regional Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse before relocating to San Antonio in 2003 (which she loves and now calls home). Abigail received a Master Degree from UTSA in 2006 and joined the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Awareness (SACADA) that same year. During her tenure as CEO with the agency she has increased the budget by 400% and staff size has tripled. Under her leadership the agency has expanded services from 1 county to 26 counties. In February 2022 the Hill Country Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse Board of Directors voted to accept Mrs. Moore to become the CEO for the agency and to transfer governance to the SACADA Board of Directors. The merging efforts of these two agencies will ensure that the full continuum of care is provided jointly.

Her affiliations are many and represent the true nature of her work: building community through strong leadership. She is the current President for the Texas Association of Addiction Programs (ASAP). She serves on the Advisory Board of the Criminal Justice Advisory Council at the Alamo Area Council of Government. She has continued her community involvement through organizations such as The Nonprofit Council, Excel Beyond the Bell, The Center for Young Minds, United Way Emerging Leaders and the Bexar County Opioid Taskforce (2018). Her experience and expertise in marketing, fundraising, event planning, management, and public relations have become a source of inspiration and encouragement to the vast number of individuals she has invested in through mentoring. Abigail was honored by the Texas Association of Addiction Professions for her work as a leader in the Field as the Prevention Professional of the Year (2017).
