A Message from the Director

After more than sixteen years at Crossroads, I am retiring from my position as Executive Director.  I’ve been considering this for over a year, working with my wonderful Board of Directors who have been incredibly supportive and positive in this transition. I have many happy and positive memories, mixed with some difficult and sad ones because as you know – working in the field of domestic violence is up-close and personal.

Crossroads has a remarkable group of caring advocates, attorneys, paralegals, fundraisers, grant writers, and administrative and facilities staff.  It’s an organization that is critical to the community – one that has served thousands of victims of intimate partner abuse and their children since 1980. 

I will continue in my position until April and I look forward to supporting Crossroads as a community volunteer in the years to come.
