Becky Lee Women's Support Fund
March 30, 2011
I helped to vet and introduce a friend and client to Becky Lee and the Becky's Fund more than 2 years ago. When several other organizations could not or would not help this soon to be survivor of a violent home, Becky stepped up and stepped in. She provided the support and guidance that was needed by my young client to navigate a difficult and scary path to a new life. Since then I have come to know Becky and the organization well. Becky's Fund is a rare mix of innovation, contemporary energy, and compassion. All of those things are embodied by its Executive Director, Becky Lee. Becky fearlessly and tirelessly goes into dark places in other peoples lives and brings rays of hope. Out of that dark and violent shadow often steps a survivor, a new voice, and often times a volunteer. For those of us who get to see the work Becky and her organization do, we are left in collective awe, and inspired to do more ourselves. The passion, commitment and energy that Becky instills in others is contagious. The innovative ways in which the organization reaches different audiences is to be admired. DV is a problem that affects every strata of society -- in the Becky's Fund you will find several voices signing in concert and in perfect pitch with its several audiences. Bravo, Becky Lee!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Over the past 2 years i have watched Becky's Fund help so many women and men, not just leave a violent home, but find new homes, new jobs and manage finances. With her army of volunteers, Becky Lee not only saves lives, she restores them.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
wish that it was fully funded with a huge endowment!
Professional with expertise in this field & I helped connect a victim with Becky's Fund and watched her turn her into a survivor.
