September 14, 2007

Elizabeth L. Dalton, an attorney and shareholder with the law firm of McAfee & Taft, has been elected president of Travelers Aid and Homeless Assistance Center.

Since joining the board of directors in 2004, she has served in various leadership capacities and has been actively involved in the organization’s annual fundraising campaign and American Tourist event.  She most recently served as vice president of the board of directors.

Founded in 1925, Oklahoma City-based Travelers Aid and Homeless Assistance Center serves the homeless and impoverished by providing case management, transitional housing, and other stabilizing resources to meet basic social needs through its community and family outreach programs.  The nonprofit organization’s trained volunteers also assist travelers at Will Rogers World Airport, including military personnel and international students, by providing them with information, referrals and emergency assistance.

Last year, Travelers Aid served more than 3,100 people through its community outreach program, distributed 11,000 bus tokens to the homeless and impoverished searching for employment and needing transportation to social services and medical appointments, and assisted nearly 140,000 travelers at Will Rogers World Airport.

Dalton also serves on the seven-member board of directors of McAfee & Taft, where her transactional law practice is primarily focused on the healthcare industry.  Her experience and expertise in the area of healthcare law have earned her inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America and Oklahoma Super Lawyers.
