FROM OUR BOARD PRESIDENT

Summer 2021

One Place Family Justice Center or “One Place”, as we like to call it, began this fiscal year in a deluge of COVID-19 issues, economic disparities, and social and political upheaval.

But throughout this year of social, emotional, and physical challenges, I am pleased to share that One Place continued to serve victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse, and child abuse.

As Board members, we have been good fiduciaries, steering One Place towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance as well as by making sure One Place has adequate resources to advance our mission. We have made obtaining those resources a priority. Board members, thank you for your time, commitment, and service! We have accomplished a lot and we have also grown as a family. We welcome Suzanna Wasserman, Antonio Fortson, Al Steineker and Adena Kramer to our Board of Directors' family.

Everybody deserves relationships free from domestic and sexual violence. When you are ready, our One Place staff will be there to listen and help. Please join me in thanking our amazing executive team and staff for the great services they provide to our clients. The tripod (Marjorie Baker, Dena Donovan, Crystal Jamith), the entire staff, and partners of One Place Family Justice Center are truly making a positive difference in our community. Our staff are silent heroes. They are brave workers that risk their lives to save others, even during this horrific pandemic. Thank you for your dedication to the victims in the nine counties we service.

I am constantly amazed by the passion of our individual donors and funders. Whether it’s $10, $1,000, or more, our donors are steadfast and unwavering in their support. It's because of your generosity that we are able to provide a safe place for victims of violence. On behalf of our Board of Directors, clients, staff, and partners: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The One Place Family Justice Center is here to help you. Saving lives and helping victims regain their voice is what we do. Whether you just need advice about what to do in your situation or you are ready to take action now, One Place is here and ready to help you. Our commitment is not only helping victims of domestic and sexual violence in a crisis, but we want to be a force in preventing it from happening.

It is our vision to help reduce homicides; increase victim safety; empower victims; reduce fear and anxiety for victims and their children; reduce recantation and minimization; wrap the victim in services, and hold offenders accountable. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced massive changes in our daily operations and there has been an increase in domestic violence, sexual abuse, and child abuse. School closures have further amplified abuse and exploitation of women and girls. We realize that many organizations are asking for your help during this deadly pandemic, but we are asking you to find some way in your budget to help victims of domestic and sexual violence, child and elderly abuse, and human trafficking. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
