LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The YWCA's domestic violence program now has new director and she might be a familiar face for some.
Leah Giorgini started as a volunteer answering phones for the crisis hotline in 2016. She then became a case advocate in 2017.
Giorgini has now been named the director of the Domestic Violence Intervention and Prevention Program.
She said she hopes to continue to grow the successful program, which has many pieces to it.
"Involved in domestic violence are things such as race, healthcare access, welfare, housing and housing subsidies. So, that is an integral part of our program that we're helping residents and our clients get those things in life," said Giorgini.
Giorgini started her new role on Monday.
