“Domestic violence is a significant problem in all segments of our community. Each year, there are approximately 4,000 incidents of domestic violence reported to the police in Bergen County, and one in four women reports having been a victim of domestic violence. Now at the helm of CHS, I am eager to apply my skills, knowledge and expertise to continue and expand the critical services of the Center, providing safety, hope and strength.”
