The board of directors at Domestic And Sexual Abuse Services announced Rose Ludwick’s departure as executive director, effective Feb. 25.
Deborah Hackworth, director of advocacy services, will fill the role of interim executive director.
Ludwick began her career with DASAS in 2008 as an office administrator and was named executive director in 2018.
Under Ludwick’s leadership, DASAS accomplished several goals, including more opportunities to heal from trauma through additional services at Hillmann House Safe Shelter, and expansion of support groups and implement classes that are culturally specific.
The board thanked Ludwick for her dedication, vision, passion and leadership. In turn, Ludwick said it has been a pleasure working with the board and DASAS team.
A search committee will select a new executive director, subject to ratification by the Board of Directors.
Domestic and Sexual Abuse Services is an organization whose goal is to end domestic violence and sexual assault in Southwest Michigan. DASAS serves victims and their families in Cass, St. Joseph and Van Buren counties.
