I've been the independent auditor for Elizabeth Stone House for 20 years, and have enjoyed watching this fine Organization continue to evolve and grow as a leader in the domestic violence field. ESH continues to excel in finding ways to empower people to reclaim their lives and their independence. My hat is off to the amazing dedicated team and Board of ESH.
