I am the executive director of Project Safe, a local non-profit organization that offers services from short-term crisis counseling to long-term support through housing programs. In my role, I have the opportunity to help countless domestic violence survivors find some safety and normalcy in their lives. The challenge with teaching social work and nonprofit management is that while some things work great in theory, they don’t always work as well when put into action. This is the challenge I want to bestow on my students, I want them to think in a new light about the practices and studies that we do in class, and I want to share my experiences with them in hopes that it can make them understand that what we do can change at any given moment.
