Women Helping Women Award
Kristin Chapin, Associate Director of the YWCA of Bucks County, was given the Women Helping Women Award for herself and the staff of the YWCA in recognition of their dedication to the Haven House program, which provides a safe house for women and children fleeing human trafficking. During their stay at Haven House, participants are provided with crisis advocacy, trauma-informed counseling and other supportive services.
Chapin, and past recipients of this award, are lauded as those who use their positions, influence and authority to open broader avenues of opportunity for women, working to eliminate economic, legal, social or political
discrimination. Chapin’s involvement, dedication and collaboration with other agencies played a huge role in the success of the project.
