Being a voice for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse until they regain their voices, is why I volunteer at the Crisis Center. We make change happen. I am proud to be on the Board of Directors at the Center.

My family was a victim of domestic violence. When I say my family it’s because while a mother may endure the violence it touches everyone in the home. I consider myself a survivor of childhood domestic violence and my goal is; that I can help bring hope and healing to others that have lived through the trauma of domestic violence as children and as adults. The Crisis Center and the Child Advocacy Center help give that sense of hope and healing and that is why I partner with them.
The Crisis Center is an essential service and single source for Women and Children in Crisis and in need of all types of personal and family support. As a Board member I am proud of the work that we do to help so many families in a time of great distress. I am also encouraged by the Center's proactive work to outreach and educate our community to disrupt the cycle of violence against women and children.
My experience with the CAC has been excellent. The staff is always welcoming and inviting to CPS staff as well the families. They are thorough and have acquired different trainings so that the family and children feel the most comfortable possible while visiting the CAC. They also go out of their way to make sure the families are receiving the proper resources such as counseling in order to fortify their family bond and prevent future trauma. They also use community resources to connect the families with any additional help they may be needing.
