The Board of Directors of Families Living Violence Free announced Pamela Tyler Thompson will lead the agency.
Thompson has served domestic violence and sexual assault victims in North Carolina for nearly 15 years in various capacities. She brings with her an extensive background of experience founded in community education, violence prevention programming in schools, coordinating multidisciplinary teams to address these problems, conducting forensic interviews and court advocacy.
She has served on the N.C. Domestic Violence Commission for the last six years, appointed by Sen. Phil Berger, where she chairs the Trainings and Education Committee and the Victim’s Services Committee. Appointed by Speaker Tim Moore, Pam served on the N.C. Child Fatality Task Force Intentional Death Committee for the last four years. She was recently appointed to the N.C. Governor’s Crime Commission by Senator Phil Berger.
FLVF, Granville County’s domestic violence/rape crisis center, has been serving victims since 2004.
Thompson said her goal is to build solid relationships with those who serve every aspect of the Granville County community in order to provide victims of violence with resources and support. These partnerships will include the District Attorney’s Office, judges, the Department of Social Services, law enforcement, juvenile services, the school system and the faith community.
