Board and Staff

EFC staff with signs for sexual assault awareness month

EFC staff getting the word out!

We have a dedicated and hardworking team- board, staff and volunteers- working together with a common vision.

Our staff is energetic and dedicated.  Many of us have been with the agency for over ten years, others have returned to the agency because of a commitment to its cause.  We are racially and culturally diverse, with 36% identifying as persons of color and 18% bi-cultural Latino.

Our board includes members from throughout the county with business, financial, public relations, clinical, educational, legal, management and medical backgrounds.

Our volunteer base continues to grow and includes volunteer counselor/advocates who work in our shelter, on our hotline, and in the courts.  We have volunteers who organize our donations and our offices.  One long-time volunteer founded and works in our SafePet program.
