Linda Johanek, Chief Executive Officer of the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center, plans move to new venture

(Plain Press, July 2017)     Linda Johanek, Chief Executive Officer of the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center for the past nine years and a member of their staff for the past 22 years, has announced that she will be resigning her position effective August 3rd of this year. Johanek says she plans to join Morino Ventures, LLD, working with the Leap of Reason Community, helping many non-profits become high performing agencies.

As CEO of the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center, Johanek guided the agency through a merger with Bellflower Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, a capital campaign, relocation initiative, and increased capacity and expansion of services to respond to the victims of child abuse and domestic violence. During her tenure at the agency, Johanek says she has seen it grow from a $1 million budget to a nearly $5 million budget. The number of staff members has also grown from 30 staff to a current staff level of 78 individuals. The Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center now reaches over 25,000 people in our community every year, she said.

Johanek notes several major projects embarked upon over the past few years including coordinating multidisciplinary services, increasing safety, decreasing trauma, and increasing accessibility to underserved populations such as those at risk of domestic violence, the hearing impaired, and children.

The Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center Board of Directors has appointed Chief Operating Officer Leslie Quilty as Interim CEO, as the search for a new Chief Executive Officer begins.
