Carrie Johnson was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. She graduated from McKinley High School in Mathematics and Science.

She joined IT Takes A Village Action Organization Inc. As a student and is currently apart of the Administrative staff. Being apart of the staff is not only a privilege, but also an honor, as She is able to pass on to others, what was poured into her. She wholeheartedly believes that Faith and a relationship with God plays a huge part in one's development and growth.

Coming from a background in Customer service and Childcare, She knew that she always had a love for People. Carrie is Driven and inspired by the idea of helping and encouraging people. Her passion coupled with the vision of I.T.A.V to help implement change to improve lives, allows her to work on her desire and goals - steadily creating personal growth but most importantly furthering her passion to serve others and give back.


Our mission is to transform the overall well-being of the Buffalo community by connecting, engaging, and developing effective relationship strategies for sustainability in health, literacy, training, and employment.


We want to move people from APATHY to ACTIVITY by providing comprehensive services that are culturally sensitive, person-centered, competent, and specific to the needs of the individual in order to promote a productive, healthy community.


We use a holistic approach to problem-solving and rehabilitation as foundational aspect of ITAV's training philosophy that incorporates the following motivational underpinnings for successful, long-term employability: engaging, enriching, encouraging, enhancing, enlightening, enriching, energizing, ensuring, equipping, entrusting, educating, and empowering.
