Lassen Family Services welcomes new executive director
Freeman has served in many capacities with this agency beginning in 1995 as a Student Intern, Crisis Line Volunteer, Administrative Assistant, Court Appointed Special Advocates Program Coordinator, Parent Educator, and approximately three years as the Deputy Director for the Crisis Line, Domestic Violence Assistance Program and Sexual Assault/Rape Crisis and Child Abuse Treatment and Prevention Programs.
Freeman brings not only her expertise in the field of human services, but also her personal experience as a survivor of domestic violence. She has her bachelor’s degree in sociology with plans in the future to pursue her master’s in social work. Her goals and ambitions include the continuum in the provision of quality services to victims of crime in Lassen County and to target underserved populations who lack these services. Darla shares her vision to empower victims to move beyond victimization to becoming survivors.
“My passion is to extend hope and healing to those who are hurting and to encourage victims to open their heart, believe in themselves and learn to trust once again,” said Freeman.
“I look forward to my new role as executive director for Lassen Family Services, Inc. It is an honor to serve the community and to be a part of making a positive difference in the life of others.”
