WOW – Look what happened while I was gone!

While I took a few days off last week, the WCA team was hectic finalizing the launch of our new website, the WCA intranet site, and the WCA Prevention HUB, which is a special section of our website designed to be a youth resource. I am incredibly proud of the WCA team and all they have accomplished to bring these projects to fruition.

With our newly launched website, we hope to make our resources easier to find for those that need our services or are struggling to find ways to support someone they know suffering in an abusive relationship or who have suffered the trauma of sexual assault. We also want to make supporting our clients and our work easier. If you wish to help us with your time, talent or treasure – we look forward to having you engage with us through one of the many opportunities you will find by checking out the list of events posted online.

For our WCA team, having an intranet means that we will have a unique platform to communicate and share information about our team and organization’s happenings. Communication is always a challenge for any organization, particularly when team members are spread across three different physical locations and work various shifts. Add to that the extra disconnect caused by having some team members working at home, and we hope that this new virtual bulletin board will help us feel more connected.

The WCA Prevention HUB is an inspiring addition to our website. I encourage you to go there and listen to the first podcast featuring our Prevention Manager and two of our youth reps. They provide their perspective on why peer-to-peer outreach is essential if we are ever to break the cycle of abuse and violence in our community. Anyone who has youth in their life – take a few minutes to check out this resource designed to provide practical tips and resources.

February is teen dating violence awareness month. With these great new resources available to our community – we would appreciate anything you can do to share them with your network.
Like our teens tell us all the time, peer-to-peer communication is how the message is best spread and how transformational change will happen.

Help our youth know their worth!
