“Serving on the Board of Directors of Family Haven is a great way to help, as a business owner, bring about awareness of the problem faced by abused women and men and their children,” explained Marie Dinsmore. “Along with my colleagues from various businesses and community organizations, we are able to learn more about the needs of individuals facing abuse while putting our resources and knowledge together for the benefit of those we serve.”
In collaboration with other organizations throughout Forsyth County and Metro Atlanta, Dinsmore hopes the cycle of family violence will someday be broken. In the meantime, she joins the efforts of the organization’s Board of Directors in their quest for funding, advocacy and assistance to those in need.
