Carol McKinney

Executive Director
Harmony Home


Carol McKinney began working with people with developmental disabilities in 1976 when she was a high school volunteer in a Special Day Class. It was during that time Carol realized her lifework would be to advocate for and provide services to people with developmental disabilities. Carol’s plan was to teach; however, while working her way through college as an aide in a Special Day Class she realized the classroom was not for her; the community was where she wanted to be. Carol co-founded Harmony Home, Associated in 1982. Carol’s education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies, with an emphasis on Special Education, from San Francisco State University and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) from St. Mary’s College. Carol’s past and present professional affiliations include the Contra Costa County Developmental Disabilities Council, Regional Center of the East Bay Provider/Vendor Advisory Council, Mt. Diablo Adult Education On Track Advisory Committee, California Disability Services Association, Co-Chair of the California Supported Living Network (CSLN), Co-Chair of Governmental Affairs for CSLN, California Association of Non-Profits, and California Chamber of Commerce.
