Beth Hines

Community Partners in Action (CPA), a Hartford nonprofit focused on behavioral change and criminal justice reform, has tapped its former chief operating officer as executive director.

CPA announced Beth Hines as its new executive director, replacing Maureen Price-Boreland, who was selected by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to be a Superior Court judge.

The Hartford nonprofit conducted a six-month national search before landing on Hines, who has spent 27 years at CPA, a 143-year-old social-services agency.

Hines, a Bristol native, began her professional career as a job developer at CPA immediately after graduating from UConn in 1991.
