Carmaletta has dedicated over fourteen years to the community as the Founder of the Morlock Foundation, Inc. The foundation’s mission is to improve quality of life, specifically focusing on those suffering from traumatic experiences. Services provided by the office located in Buffalo include a food pantry, work with foster children who have aged out of the system, support for foster parents and lastly, Save the Family, a program that offers support to families that suffer from the traumas that come with disease or disability.
The foundation, which was started with Carmaletta’s funds, is a completely volunteer and donation-based organization. While she is in charge of every aspect of the foundation, she also has her own caseload of clients, runs all board meetings and committees for events and provides internships for students at Daemen and UB. As shared in her nomination, “Carmaletta is a very selfless and unique woman. She not only puts in more than 40 hours a week at our office location, she does work for the food pantry, has adopted 5 children and will drop everything when she is working for her clients.”
Carmaletta also serves on the Head Start Program’s Policy Council for the Community Action Organization. She resides in Getzville and is a proud wife, mother and adoptive mom. Carmaletta has provided foster care to over 30 children. She is currently writing a book and also enjoys art, music, camping, four-wheeling and kayaking.
