October News & Updates

Dear Friends,

Sunday marked my 20 year anniversary at the Women’s Resource Center. Having the opportunity to lead incredible teams of dedicated, talented, passionate human beings- both as Director of Prevention and now as Executive Director is an honor I am humbled by every day. 

I have been working at this organization for nearly half of my life. I am so proud of all that we have accomplished, collectively, over the last 20 years. I learned so much working for years with young people in the community, supporting their efforts to prevent dating violence among their peers. Establishing the Newport Health Equity Zone, the culmination of years of evolution in our approach to prevention, is another highlight for me. More recently, introducing the 4-day Work Week has been so meaningful for our staff.

I owe a special shout out to… 

… my family for putting up with me and all that it means to be a non-profit leader.

… to our board members, past and present, who have supported my growth as a leader.

… our amazing staff, past and present, who work tirelessly every day to end domestic violence.

… our steadfast community who have always been there to support our work and collaborate on creating meaningful change.

I am excited to highlight a few of our #DVAM outreach activities as well as share our upcoming plans for the rest of October.  I hope you will join the conversation.

In Solidarity,

Jessica Walsh

Executive Director
