When I moved to Athens in 2005, I knew no one in town with the exception of a few family members and Project Safe was my first connection to Athens and the people that work so hard to make this a better community. Finding Project Safe, led by such an incredible individual in Joan Prittie, and with a mission that was about serving those who are the most vulnerable in our community, was one of the most important events for me since moving to Athens. Over the past five years we have worked hard to reduce Project Safe’s dependency on grants and fickle federal funding, build a strategic plan that would support and improve the impact of the organization on its clients and help educate the community to create systematic change that works to stop the cycle of violence. Today, after more than five years of serving on Project Safe’s board and in various offices, I am sure that I have gained far more from my time with such an incredible organization than I could have ever hoped to contribute to it.
