Deanne Thomas

Program Coordinator

Why do you do what you do?

I am a dedicated supporter of the Resolve to Stop the Violence Program because of the invaluable impact it has on men who are willing to turn their lives around–and the continued positive ripple effect it has on the lives of others. I feel grateful for being part of a team of skillful facilitators who guide, assist and help empower our clients to reconnect with their authentic selves and effectively stop the cycle of violence they have been caught up in.

As Administrative Assistant, I work directly with the facilitators to keep the program running smoothly. I am responsible for the background production and attention to detail that goes into the effectiveness of this critical work. Before taking on this position, I taught yoga in studios “on the outside,” as well as various programs “on the inside.” While teaching yoga in RSVP, I realized that I wanted to become much more involved and supportive of its mission.

When I’m not at CW, you might find me practicing yoga, cooking, walking my dogs, supporting political causes and campaigns, and interacting with friends and family.
