Update from Lisa Uhlmann, Corporate Program Manager

Greetings from the WCA! The WCA is especially busy during the month of October–it is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. On October 1, community leaders, in partnership with the WCA, proclaimed October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month at the Peace Officers’ Memorial in Meridian. The event was live-streamed on Facebook and Youtube and can be watched here. We have some exciting events this month, including our annual Healing Begins with Hope fundraising and outreach event on October 29 and 30. You can register for this event here. Please reach out to me if you need additional information or have any questions.

Your continued support means so much to the WCA and our clients.

Wishing you a wonderful fall season!

Most gratefully,
Lisa Uhlmann
