Inez Scope

Inez Scope (d.2005) Joined 4/61. After being reared at Miles Memorial CME Church, she joined All Souls where she taught Sunday School, ushered and was a charter member and president of the Jubilee Singers.

Scope was a consummate organizer of both church and civic activities who devoted her professional career to public service and working with children with fairly intense social and emotional disabilities and their families. Her professional career includes co-founding and guiding the growth and success of the Family Advocacy and Support Association (FASA), which was a creative and resourceful family support, advocacy, and educational organization, dedicated to helping families deal with the daily challenges and demands of rearing children with serious emotional disabilities. This organization blossomed and gained such prominence over its 18 year existence that it became a significant force in building and expanding the national movement for children’s mental health.

In addition to her work with FASA, Scope worked for a number of years for the DC Department of Mental Health, now the Department of Behavioral Health, at the Area C Community Health Center, and was a very dedicated member of the Advisory Board of the Jackie Robinson Center for Excellence in Education, which was a school for adolescents with mental health challenges.

Scope graduated from Dunbar High School and attended Howard University.
