TARGET/GOALS/PRIORITY ISSUE for 2012-2013:
Our ongoing priority is to continue to be here providing quality service to women and their children fleeing abuse and crises in their lives. We are exploring new ways to support abused women who also deal with addictions and mental wellness. We realize the importance of networking with other agencies as we often work with and support many of the same clients. To continue this process is a priority for us.
