Profile:

She was the co-chair of the Saratoga County Homelessness Alliance from 2004-2007 and is active on many local partnerships advocating for youth, homeless persons, and those with disabilities. For the past seven years she was the volunteer coordinator of AIDSWAlk and also volunteers locally for a variety of projects. Maggie is an active member of Soroptimist International, the Business and Professional Women of Tech Valley and the Women in Business Committee of the Southern Saratoga Chamber.  Recognition: 2009 The District Attorney’s Public Service Award for her commitment to assisting victims of crime.   2008  The Saratoga County Citizens’ Committee for Mental Health Citizen of the Year for outstanding service to the mental health community.   2009 Capitaland Quarterly's Dozen Who Make a Difference for “contributing to the Capital Region’s vitality through leadership that has broadened opportunities for her fellow citizens and enhanced the experience of living in our community. 2010 The Sunshine Peace Award to honor her work assisting domestic violence victims.

Leadership Statement:

As I was pondering how to describe DVRC’s impact, I came across a note from a former client (see below). I realized her words were far more eloquent in describing our mission than I could ever be. While I would say that DVRC’s purpose is to provide the support needed to transform lives, she paints the picture of why this is so important.  My words wither in comparison to hers. For many years I hid in my own home – isolated and depressed. I lived in a secluded area of the County, hundreds of miles from friends and relatives. To avoid my husband’s outrages I hid in the back bedroom of my house. I was lost and alone. Today I am able to function as a valued member of society, manage my finances, mentally focus on my job, better understand the legal system and live safely on my own. I remain forever grateful and owe my life to the support of the DVRC team.”But I do have one thing to add... the vision for tomorrow. For over aquarter of a century, we’ve helped victims; our dream for tomorrow is acommunity where no one lives with such fear and desperation as she  describes. So that is our new focus; creating community level change to end domestic abuse and sexual violence.  It’s an attainable goal, but we need your hel“How can I help?”1. Your donations can help us launch new programs to involve communities in creating change, and 2.  Take a stand. Talk to your friends, family and co-workers about theseissues. Help us bring domestic abuse and sexual violence out of the shadows.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

My heart and prayers are with all the women past, present and future who live in these rooms, and you… who selflessly give to prevent disaster.   Dear Friends,   I can’t thank the DV staff enough for helping to light my darkest days.
