Board Position Open: FavorHouse of Northwest Florida

Position Description

FavorHouse of Northwest Florida is seeking board members willing to be actively engaged on committees, attend board meetings and provide financial support within their means.  

About FavorHouse is the certified domestic violence center for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties of District I. In 1976, a task force was formed to study the housing needs of women in Northwest Florida. From that study, it was apparent there was no housing available for victims of spouse abuse and their children. To address that need the Task Force on Spouse Abuse was formed under the guidance of the YWCA. In June 1979, the Spouse Abuse Task Force became the Favor (Family Anti-Violence in Organized Response) House Advisory Council.

Mission: With a commitment to excellence in our service to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, we actively work toward every intimate relationship to be violence free.
