We are governed by a board of directors comprised of leaders in finance, education, marketing, nonprofits and business communities. The board is charged with providing oversight and counsel on matters related to the organization’s mission, vision, strategic plan and financial sustainability. 

In addition to their broad range of expertise, board members bring passion and commitment to our mission of empowering individuals and engaging communities to end domestic violence.

The Center thanks the the board of directors for their time, dedication, and commitment to guiding and supporting our work.
