“I have always felt that Day One’s greatest strength is its staff. I’m honored and humbled by the depth of skill, passion, and commitment my current and former colleagues have brought to our mission. As the organization has grown, I have had the opportunity to learn from an increasingly large group, and each person adds their unique training and life experience to lifting up the voices of youth as we work to end relationship abuse.”

-Stephanie Nilva, Founder and Executive Director
