Staff and Board of The Advocates

We Are The Advocates

We believe that people of all ages deserve relationships that are based in safety and respect.

We believe in the power each of us hold to change our lives for the better.

We believe that we can work together to build a community free from physical and emotional abuse.

Meet our team, who work each day to turn belief into action.
