About Resilience

empowering survivors since 1977

Since 1977, our agency has served survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Ottawa and Allegan Counties. For more than 40 years, we have responded to the needs of survivors; expanded our reach, evolved our services, and created new partnerships and programs designed to interrupt the intergenerational cycle of violence. This growth has resulted in not only an increase in survivors seeking assistance, but also a growth in the way the community is engaging in violence prevention.

Our Transition

In 2018, Center for Women in Transition established a Rebranding Committee responsible for overseeing the initiative. After consulting many of the organization’s key stakeholders, the Committee selected a marketing firm and worked diligently to create a brand that better represents the diverse population we serve. In 2019, it was announced that Center for Women in Transition will now be known as Resilience: Advocates for Ending Violence.

Our Mission

The mission of the organization will not change. Resilience will continue to respond to, reduce, and prevent domestic and sexual violence in Ottawa and Allegan counties.

The Public Launch

Resilience: Advocates for Ending Violence took place at the organization’s 27th annual Reach for the Stars Gala May 1, 2019 at The Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville.

For more information on the rebranding process please contact Christina Scarpino, Director of Development at 616-494-1756 or ChristinaS@ResilienceMI.org
