Thank You Angela Stahlbaum

 

At our Annual General Meeting held in June, we had the privilege of honoring staff for their service to Women’s Crisis Services.  We are fortunate to have very dedicated staff, who give of themselves every day. One of the staff who was honored for 10 years of service is Angela Stahlbaum, who is on the Outreach Team at Anselma House, our Kitchener Shelter.

 

Jennifer Hutton, Outreach Manager honored Angela with the following words:

 

“Angela is on the Outreach Team at Women’s Crisis Service’s.  Angela started with the agency on April 29th, 2003 as a Residential Service Worker. Angela moved to her current role in Outreach in January of 2007, and works with women in the community who are in crisis and often at the greatest risk safety wise.  Angela manages to help these women quickly stabilize and move to a greater place of safety.  Consistently she skillfully works to help women and children move beyond violence.”
