With strategic planning and a group of hard-working board members, Elisabeth Gadd hopes Safe Harbor can accomplish a lot.
Gadd, president of Safe Harbor’s 2013 Board, said the organization has been focusing on creating a five-year plan that will best serve the area (Greenville, Anderson, Pickens and Oconee counties). In this first year of the five-year plan, Safe Harbor hopes to focus on the Oconee County campaign and reach out to the community through counseling, shelter care, post-shelter care, advocacy and education – all meant to promote the mission of serving victims of domestic violence and their children.
“I think it’s very exciting,” Gadd said. “We’re working hard to move forward and I think we’ve made big strides.”
The organization has announced its 2013 board of directors and Gadd said the members are all “committed and dedicated” to the cause.
“I think it’s a great board,” she said. “It’s a hard-working board.”
