Spas? Media Division? Wining & dining congressmen on donor dollar?
Interesting list of board members, but since having money is obviously not a prerequisite, why not bring some law enforcement on board? Biggest drug dealer in Ruidoso started at shelter? In the papers last month. Lots to say about the organization.

It's apparent you have NO idea how much good HEAL and the NEST do. Perhaps you're ignorant on the subject of lobbying - which, btw, is how things get done in the roundhouse, and in Washington. Taking a congressman to dinner is one way of getting their ear in order to get important legislation passed that protects domestic violence survivors. Have you taken the time to personally get to know the board? Every single one of the board members is there because they care about victims. There's not a hidden agenda.

Adding law enforcement to the board is, generally speaking, not a good idea because their hands are tied by their position. Furthermore, law enforcement often doesn't understand why the same victims often rotate out of the NEST, returning to their abusers several times before finally getting free. These board members do understand. They're familiar with the cycle of violence and what it takes to break it.

Shut your ignorant mouth until you absolutely understand the entire picture. You just come off as uneducated and hard-hearted.

If your so concerned about the job that HEAL is doing for our victims, maybe you should put your money where your mouth is and VOLUNTEER! They always need help.

Having volunteered for years for Domestic Abuse programs and victims of Rape, I understand your frustration. But being negative and insulting people will not get them to change their minds.

Try to be more posistive in your response next time. Maybe that will help.

I'm not interested in changing anyone's mind, or being positive, especially where such wonderful people are concerned. The NEST and HEAL are a God-send to so many in this area.

Ignorance breeds ignorance. And people will spread snark and filth about these wonderful people regardless of the approach you take to try and change their minds. My best wishes to the new board of HEAL.

As for mezzaluna, I hope they never need d/v services. It'd really be a shame to see what good work HEAL and the NEST do from the point of view of the victim.

I've never heard the board criticized, just the director, who has alienated so many agencies and individuals. Former board members will tell you.

one bad apple wouldn't be so bad in a bunch of greatness, but when that person demands the spotlight, it most certainly can tarnish even the most glorious of gatherings.
