NEW PRESIDENT & CEO IS

ON A COURSE TO SUCCESS

Diane Williams, MSW, LCSW, spent her first day of work on the golf course—not as a player, but as a host to the 19th annual Verizon Hope Classic. 

On a beautiful, hot summer day, Williams and event co-chair Pete O'Hagan (pictured) welcomed 100 golfers and clinic participants to the nationally ranked Somerset Hills Country Club. Thanks to the golfers and sponsors, the event raised $154,000 to support the mission of JBWS.

"It was a great day and a wonderful opportunity to meet so many people who are commited to preventing domestic violence," says Diane Williams. "No one should have to experience family or partner violence and I am proud to lead the organization in Morris County that addresses this critical issue." 

Prior to joining JBWS, Williams worked for 20 years with Family Intervention Services (FIS), a private, non-profit organization.

FEBRUARY IS

TEEN DATING VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH

Morris Area Students

Stand Up to Dating Abuse

Delbarton School student leaders show off their winning campaign slogan on a banner donated by the Randolph Municipal Alliance.

February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM). “There’s No Excuse for Abuse” is the winning campaign slogan for TDVAM in Morris County. Created by student leaders from Delbarton, the slogan was selected by professionals from Marketsmith at the county-wide Teens for Healthy Relationships Leadership Conference hosted by Randolph High School and sponsored by JBWS last November.

With support from Marketsmith and a generous $1,000 contribution from the Randolph Municipal Alliance, the campaign is being brought to life through large bright yellow banners that are distributed to 17 participating area high schools.

Randolph High School student leaders with JBWS' dating abuse prevention educator and counselor Anna Nase, get ready to hang their banner in the school's entry way for all to see.

Together, We Can Take a Stand

Against Violence and Shed a Light on Its Many Consequences

Consider these statistics:

  • 1 in 4 women will be physically or sexually abused by a partner in her lifetime.
  • There are 2,000 domestic violence offenses in Morris County each year, which account for 40% of all reported offenses.
  • 1 in 3 teens are victims of dating abuse.
  • Children are involved in 80% of domestic violence situations.
  • A child's exposure to domestic abuse is the strongest risk factor for passing violent behavior from one generation to the next.
  • Boys who are bullies are nearly four times as likely as non-bullies to grow up to physically or sexually abuse their female partners,
  • Over half of mass shootings are related to domestic violence situations.

Victim blaming and shaming keep the problem hidden. You can help to break the silence. Invite JBWS to speak to your civic, faith based, employee or community group. Learn more. Create safer communities. Contact rbraham@jbws.org.
