Honoring Beatris Burgos’s Legacy at CAWC after 37 Years

Celebrating the retirement of Greenhouse Shelter Director, Beatris Burgos

“What motivates me is the drive that survivors have. Even though they lose everything, they want so much more for themselves and their family… I always felt like I had no choice but to partner with them and support their journey.”

It is with deep, heartfelt love that CAWC sends off Beatris Burgos as she retires after 37 influential years of servicing domestic violence survivors. A beacon of light and hope at CAWC, Bea became a built-in support system for shelter residents as they navigated the trials and tribulations of seeking safety and eradicating violence from their lives. It is never an easy journey, but Bea’s unwavering support and dedication to making a difference lit a fire of resilience within our clients and our communities. 

Your gift means that CAWC will be able to continue supporting individuals and families experiencing abuse today. Thank you for helping us actualize our mission and continue Bea’ legacy at CAWC.
