In 2020, Ladies Who Launch will highlight impactful women in our community through the new Powerhouse Women Series. On Feb. 19, Julie Porterfield, founder and CEO of the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center, will share her “Unwavering Journey to Make Children's Lives Better."
The Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center's (ECCAC) mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect, protect children in Okaloosa and Walton counties, and restore the lives and futures of these impacted children. The Center’s child-friendly facilities in Niceville and DeFuniak Springs house a multidisciplinary team of child protection personnel, prosecutors, law enforcement, DCF, therapists, and ECCAC staff and volunteers. In the past 19 years, more than 12,000 children have received more than 60,000 services to include mental health therapy, crisis intervention, referrals to other community providers, interviews and medicals. Services are provided at no cost by ECCAC, a 501-C-3 non-profit organization.
Ladies Who Launch, a committee of the Destin Chamber, offers the Chamber's female membership a platform for strategic networking and relationship building, while training, motivating and inspiring those members.
There is no cost to attend this event, but space is limited, and registration is required. Please bring your lunch.
Save the date! Our next event will be Wednesday, April 15. Details will be announced soon.
