Domestic Violence Crisis Center
May 28, 2010
The Domestic Violence Crisis Center has always ranked as one of the two organizations I most admire in my community. I began my association with them by attending their annual luncheon. I was then asked to be on the luncheon committee and finally to fill a position on the Board of Trustees. The DVCC provides comfort and safety for abused women and their children in the form of safe houses in two of the seven communities which we serve. It also provides counseling and advocacy, both judicial and medical. And, of equal importance, it enters the schools in each of the communities on every age level and provides courses for the students teaching them the skills needed to be a responsible member of society.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
spending time at both of it's offices and visiting it's safehouses as well as serving on the Board of Trustees
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The staff and the Board of trustees are totally committed and word towards the common goal of providing safety and comfort to our clients
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
All are devoted to the cause of eliminating domestic violence
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Concentrate our efforts on helping our clients and be freed from the time consuming work of having to raise the funds to accomplish our goals
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
