Heather Jensen Selected Board President

Dear Friends,

I could not be more proud to serve the WRC in this critical role. During the 4.5 years I have been a member of the board, I have witnessed the talented, dedicated staff live and breathe the mission of the organization time and time again. As the ONLY domestic violence resource organization serving the Newport-Bristol-East Bay communities, the WRC has been providing free and confidential services to victims and survivors for more than 45 years. Each year over 1,250 individuals experiencing domestic violence turn to us for help.

I step into this role at an exciting time for the WRC. We have big goals and big dreams and we know we cannot achieve them without you, our community. As we look to the future of our organization and how to better serve those who have experienced abuse, we are committed to a focus on long-term healing versus short-term intervention, and to creating a whole-person experience that helps survivors gain the strength to help themselves.

It is with enormous gratitude that I thank you, the WRC staff and leadership, and my fellow board members for supporting our organization and making it possible to continue our critical work. I look forward to seeing you in the community!


Heather Jensen
