It is our pleasure to introduce the newest member of our Prevention, Community Education, and Awareness Department - Cassandra Berry!
Cassandra is the Our Community Matters Program Coordinator. The Our Community Matters Program (OCMP) is focused on providing community education and awareness information/events to the often underserved population of African-American victims and survivors of family violence, domestic violence, or dating violence and their children in the Denton County community.
Each ethnicity or race has its own unique personality and inclination (or not) towards the therapeutic and healing process. As service providers, it is our job to recognize these sensitivities as well as any barriers we contribute that might hinder a successful outcome. The OCMP is designed to help discuss these sensitivities and barriers in a genuine and validating way; this program hopes to shine light onto statistics and conversations that are often not discussed. This program can’t thrive without community partnerships and stakeholders such as churches, businesses, schools, etc.
Cassandra would love to tell you more about Denton County Friends of the Family and the Our Community Matters Program. If you would be interested in scheduling a time to meet in person about the overall purpose of this program or any additional services we provide, or if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, she’d be happy to answer them.
Cassandra can be contacted at CBerry@dcfof.org or 940-387-5131 x241.
