In Honor of Karen Carey’s Leadership and Vision

The Board of Directors of Tahoe SAFE Alliance is honoring the legacy of former Executive Director Karen Carey, who retired after more than 30 years of service to families in Nevada; the last 11 years with Tahoe SAFE Alliance.

Karen’s wish as she retires is that Tahoe SAFE Alliance continue to help families on the path to peace.  Karen started the Children’s Program to ensure child survivors are given a voice, and expanded the Prevention Education Program to reach every child in every school in the region whether public or private.

The Board of Directors is honoring Karen’s wish by creating a fund that will carry forward what she started.  A bridge fund, it will provide financial stability for critical programs and services when timing in governmental grant funding occurs. Furthermore, this fund comes at a critical juncture as we head into a transition of the presidency where we could likely see substantive changes to our operating income.  Specialists are recommending that Board’s apply good governance and effective, efficient management including creating and building cash reserves and building unrestricted dollars.

While we will miss Karen Carey we are proud to have our new Executive Director, Paul Bancroft, at the helm.  Paul’s background and leadership in the domestic and sexual violence fields makes him uniquely qualified for continuing Karen’s vision of the future of Tahoe SAFE Alliance.


The Board of Directors is asking supporters and community members to please help Paul carry forward what Karen Carey started by donated now to the Carey Forward Fund.  You can donate by downloading and mailing in the pledge form here with payment, on our website here , or by calling 775-298-0010.
