Day One department welcomes new director
Crime Victim Services welcomes Alison Webb, LSW, as the new director of the Day One program. Webb will begin in the director position after working in the field for more than 6 years.
Webb is looking forward to starting the Day One director position and exploring the things making Lima unique. When Webb is found relaxing, she likes to read, listen to podcasts, and create art.
“In my personal life I am an artist and creator,” Webb said. “I love the creative process and [learning] new techniques and mediums.”
Webb pursued the opening after working for the last six years at Safe Haven, a dual domestic and sexual assault program, in Ashland, Ohio in conjunction with the Appleseed Community Mental Health Center. Some of the roles she held were outreach and prevention coordinator, domestic violence case manager and multiple advocate volunteer positions.
Prevention, advocacy and outreach include some of the core focuses Crime Victim Services holds in being a survivor centered agency. Coming to Crime Victims Services was a decision Webb made because of the mission and values held by the agency.
“My personal values are deep rooted in inclusivity and equity,” Webb said. “I fully believe that violence prevention is possible by individuals committing to creating change through collaboration.”
The Day One department provides advocacy and recovery services to survivors of sexual violence and human trafficking. Advocates walk with survivors through their healing journey in an aim to cultivate a community free from violence and oppression.
