SHE Change Grant – The Manchester Family Justice Center
The New Hampshire Women’s Foundation, at its annual Women Building Community event, presented its second-ever SHE Change award to The Manchester Family Justice Center. The SHE Change, the organization’s highest honor, recognizes innovation, collaboration and strengthening opportunity for New Hampshire women and girls.
In accepting the 2018 SHE Change award, Center Board Member Rashida Mohamed and Executive Director Jessica Vaughn-Martin, shared background on the Justice Center and its work to support survivors of intimate partner violence through community partnerships and coordinated services offered at the Center’s Manchester location.
New Hampshire Women’s Foundation CEO, Tanna Clews, said, “We believe that business, community, education, political and nonprofit leaders need to think about what they can do to improve the wealth, health and safety of women – changing the paradigm that limits opportunity for women in New Hampshire. By holding up and awarding programs like the Manchester Family Justice Center, the Women’s Foundation helps others understand the challenges that women in New Hampshire face—and that we can work together to find solutions.”
