Mr. Anderson received his Master’s
Degree in Business Administration with an
emphasis on finance from the University
of Southern California. Mr. Anderson
has extensive business and management
experience having previously served as
President and member of the Board of
Directors for Xtranet Systems, Inc., and as
President and CEO
Net and PageNet of
Hawaii, Inc.
In the interim, before finding Mr.
Anderson to lead the organization,
a leadership team emerged that met
and divided the responsibilities of the
executive director. This team has proven
to be an excellent decision-making
body, rapidly sharing information and
responsibility in a new and innovative
way that has been very beneficial to
the agency. As we welcome Charles
Anderson to the helm, we also recognize
the tremendous value the Collaborative
Leadership Council played over the past
eight months.

A Message from Associate Executive Director Marsha Marcoe
Presidents’ Report
A Message from Board President, Claudette Roehrig
After six years on the DVS Board of
Directors, four of those as the President,
the time has come for me to leave. Let me
begin by saying how privileged I feel to have
had the opportunity to serve this valuable
and incredible Agency in their mission to
end the intergenerational cycle of violence
by providing prevention and intervention
During these times of great social and
economic change we have enhanced our core
programs, developed relationships with our
individual, corporate and private foundation
funders and annually increased our revenue
from our highly successful fundraisers.
Blue Shield of California, working with
The Woman’s Fund, awarded us a grant to
upgrade our IT structure, reduce our carbon
footprint and reduce costs through the
efficient use of “Green Technology” across all
seven of our countywide facilities.
Our Legacy Club and the Corporate
Affiliates Program provide stability and
ensure DVS’s ability to deliver core services
to the women and children we shelter. I
will always be grateful to Susan Trescher,
who was a longtime supporter, because she
understood the value of our programs and
created a legacy making sure her charitable
intentions were realized in perpetuity.
I must acknowledge many debts of
gratitude. My job as President would have
been much more difficult if I had not had
the support and advice of many colleagues.
Marsha Marcoe, Associate Executive
Director, has never ceased to amaze me with
her humane and professional skills. She has
taught me so much about development
while sharing her knowledge of the nonprofit
world. She has always given tirelessly of
herself and has done so much to raise DVS’s
profile in Santa Barbara County.
Among my fellow Board members,
I owe a large debt of gratitude to Joel
Ohlgren for his enduring wise counsel and
support. Many thanks to Karyn Fish, who
has a talent for playing “devil’s advocate”

Executive Director
Charles Anderson
Claudette Roehrig, Board President
while educating me about HR issues.
The Task Force, a diverse and highly
skilled group, remained determined
and passionate about finding our next
Executive Director. A special thanks
must be extended to Maura Mitchell and
Julie Capritto for spearheading this six
month’s comprehensive search.
Let me also take this opportunity to
thank all the Board members for their
model of fairness and dedication. They
have always been supportive whenever I
needed them.
I also must pay tribute to our
motivated and dedicated counselors
and advocates. Without their fortitude,
sensitivity and hard work there would be
no DVS.
Last but not least, I owe a special
thanks to our Collaborative Leadership
Council, consisting of Nicole Blair,
Marsha Marcoe, Crystal Martinez, Lisa
Grassle and our grant writer, Nic Daniel.
I have been impressed with your depth
of knowledge and understanding of the
Agency’s needs and how willingly you
responded when called upon. You truly
are my “dream team”.
Finally, let me thank all of you for
your friendship and the honor of having
worked with you. I will treasure this
fulfilling and challenging experience
for the rest of my life. I leave my seat as
President feeling very optimistic about
DVS’s future. It is truly in good hands!

Keeping together is progress.

Why Brandology Gives
One of the most difficult challenges for a woman leaving an
abusive relationship is crossing the abyss between her old life and the
new violence-free life she wants to live. That abyss is deep, dark and
terrifying. It holds the very real fear that her ex-partner will maim or
kill her…he could take her kids…she must leave behind her home
and possessions…it may be impossible to keep her job…and she will
have to cut ties with friends to stay safe.
The abyss can be so frightening that it stops some battered women from escaping--especially those who do not have strong support systems.
That is why Domestic Violence Solutions for Santa Barbara is critically important to
our community. DVS’ integrated services give abused women a safe, solid bridge, and
compassionate, comprehensive support so they can cross the abyss.
Brandology is proud to be a supporter of Domestic Violence
Solutions. Our dream is to help every battered woman in Santa
Barbara County cross the abyss and live the abuse-free life she

Domestic Violence is Not a Woman’s Issue
famous parable in a SAGE publication speaks about watching a woman in crisis as she is coming down the river. Unable
to stand by and watch this woman in crisis, a fisherwoman jumps into the river and pulls the struggling woman to the
shore. Just as she is beginning to provide the necessary care to the woman she has just rescued, she is astonished to hear yet
another cry for help. Another woman, flailing and in crisis, is coming down the river. She again jumps into the river and pulls
this woman out. This happens time and time again until she is no longer surprised to hear the cry for help.
As she grows more frustrated with the never-ending stream of women in crisis, she realizes that if she is going to ultimately
stop the flow of women coming down the river in crisis, she needs to go upstream and determine what circumstances,
conditions or forces are causing the women to fall into this river.
DVS is aware that we must go upstream to determine what circumstances are creating violence against women. In a 2002
review of the relevant research Michael Kimmel found that violence is a key component of maintaining control and that more
than 90% of “systematic, persistent, and injurious” violence is perpetrated by men.
Jackson Katz, creator of a gender violence prevention and education program, and guest speaker for the DVS
High Esteem Tea has started a national conversation about the male causes of violence. Katz suggests that we
put a spotlight on men as either perpetrators or bystanders.
Please come and learn what he has to teach us on Sunday, October 5th at Bacara Resort & Spa Ballroom. For

Adapted version of the parable from a SAGE Publications Violence Against Women, 2nd Edition by Claire M. Renzetti, Jeffrey L.
Edleson, and Raquel Kennedy Bergen.

Springtime at
For the last fourteen years the Springtime Committee and
Domestic Violence Solutions has been hosting an annual
Springtime cocktail party to raise much needed funds for
those whole lives are devastated by violence in the home.
Our generous sponsors have completely underwritten the
expenses for our annual event, allowing the Springtime
Committee to raise over $1,300,000 since the very first
garden party in 2001.
