Have Horse Will Travel
Where do we go from here?
Show Notes Chapter Markers

The big question of the moment – and, honestly, at any point in the ride – is where have we been and where are we going? (Yes, I know that’s two questions).  With the uncertainties of travel restrictions and safety during this COVID-19 epidemic, that question is more relevant than ever. 

Plus, special guest Lisa of Willow Domestic Violence Center joins us for a very informative conversation about domestic violence, including useful advice on talking with teens, helping victims, and fun ways you can help end DV in your community.

About our Guest: Lisa of Willow Domestic Violence Center

Willow is the licensed residential and non-residential Domestic Violence Provider in Monroe County, New York. Services include a 24/7 hotline/textline, shelter, advocacy services, counseling, prevention education, etc. Willow is focused on being survivor centered and using a trauma informed approach.

For 13 years prior to being at Willow I worked in Higher Education in Monroe County. I talked with students every day about things like substance use/abuse, vandalism, assault, arson, rape, dating violence, stalking, disruptive community behavior, etc. When the position became open at Willow, I jumped at the chance to be on the other end of the spectrum of the issue!
