Debra Murphy, CFVC Board of Directors
Business Community Representative
President & CEO, 4-Clarity Consulting
How did you come to be involved with CFVC?
I had been very involved with a similar organization in New York, so I was excited to lend my skills to such an important non-profit. I was fortunate enough to have a friend on the board, so I learned a lot about CFVC from her before joining.
What has made you remain committed to CFVC since then?
I’ve only been on the board a few months, but every month I am more impressed with the CFVC’s many and varied accomplishments.
Describe your role on the CFVC Board – are you working on any special projects?
I’m particularly interested in using my skills to spread the word about the problems addressed by CFVC, and the many important projects it is engaged in.
Tell us about yourself – what should our clients and supporters know about you?
I’ve been a professional writer for more than 35 years, and I run my own writing firm, 4-Clarity Consulting. I am very excited to lend those skills to this dynamic organization.
What has been your favorite memory with CFVC?
So far, I really enjoyed the camaraderie helping with the motorcycle rally.
Why do you think people should get involved with CFVC?
With one in four women experiencing violence at some point in their lives, most people know someone who has experienced domestic violence — but much of it is hidden. The victims are in desperate need of resources and thoughtful planning to help them survive this ordeal and prosper once they get through it.
What is the biggest challenge you think CFVC faces and how could CFVC supporters help with that issue?
Funding probably will always be the biggest problem. The CFVC’s programs and outreach are huge, but they likely will never meet the needs of all women who could use them.
What do you most look forward to in terms of CFVC’s future?
I definitely want to help CFVC continue to grow and add resources.
