Our conversation for United Way Day with United Way Northern Shenandoah Valley's CEO, Kaycee Childress features Beth Ogle, Executive Director for Response, Inc.

April is both Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month. Response, Inc. is Shenandoah County's only agency dedicated to assisting those affected by sexual and domestic violence.  Response provides a 26-bed shelter for women and children, and extensive supportive services for survivors, both in- and out-of-shelter. Response advocates serve men, women, and children who are survivors of intimate partner and domestic violence; this includes victims of physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, and financial abuse.  

Beth talks about the various services they offer and explains the situations many of their clients find themselves in both before and after seeking help and safety. She talks about the value of the impact grants they receive through United Way and the work they're able to accomplish because of them.
