Dear Friends,

It has been my honor to serve as President of the Women’s Resource Center over the past two years. I have had the privilege of a front row seat to the amazing dedication of the staff. These devoted folks, committed to our mission, ensured our preventive and support services did not suffer as a result of the pandemic; a time when these services were needed more than ever.

Now it is my pleasure to introduce our new Board President, Heather Jensen. Heather holds a Master of Education in School Counseling from Cambridge College and brings 20 years of diverse experience to her work with youth and families. From working with high-risk and truant youth at a teenage runaway crisis center, to providing direct care and counseling roles within a family institute, to overseeing and developing student affairs at the college level, Heather’s passion for student wellness and advocacy is unmatched. Today, Heather works as the Director of Transition Services at an independent boarding school in Narragansett, RI, specializing in identifying post-secondary goals and developing individualized plans for students and families.

Heather is also passionate about her community and joined the board of Women’s Resource Center in 2019 and has served on the executive, governance, and development committees, as well as serving as co-chair of its fundraising event, the Butterfly Ball. Heather served as Vice President for the past two years, and I am confident that her strong leadership skills will serve the WRC well as she steps into the role of president of the board. In my final year on the board, I look forward to supporting Heather and ensuring a smooth leadership transition.

Thank you for your continued support of the Women’s Resource Center and the survivors we serve. If you’ve yet to give to our annual appeal, please donate today!


Tracy McCaughey
