How did you first learn about W.O.M.A.N., Inc.?
I briefly joined the staff as a Development Associate in 2011. Although I’m no longer working for the organization, I stay connected with W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s efforts through events, activities, and the newsletter, of course!
What inspired you to support W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s anti-violence efforts?
As a former staff member, I have admired firsthand the day-to-day efforts of the frontline and direct service staff here. The deliberate and incremental changes that W.O.M.A.N., Inc. has made in the movement against domestic violence has been an inspiration to the field.
What is the impact you hope for your support to have on the community?
As local and state funding faces deep cuts, I only hope that our support can contribute to the general operating costs of crucial services that W.O.M.A.N., Inc. provides, such as the one known as San Francisco City’s 24-hour Domestic Violence Hotline. General operating funds are one of the most difficult areas to raise funds for, and therefore I recognize the daily contributions of W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s efforts.
Can you share one fun fact about yourself?
I just learned how to roast a whole chicken–it was surprisingly simple!
