A Letter from the Executive Director

Jason HenryJason Henry states-“It’s an honor to join Women’s Protective Services of Lubbock-the purpose of this organization is needed more now than ever.”  Henry goes on to say, “Domestic Violence in our community is real.  WPS is at the forefront of efforts to stop the cycle of family violence in West Texas, and I am excited by the important work ahead.  It is not every day that individuals are able to say that they provide life saving services to their community.”

“Women’s Protective Services has been truly blessed this year through some amazing financial gifts, charitable support, donors and sponsorships.  The generosities of these donors have provided WPS with huge opportunities to increase our current level of services to the 3,400 + women and children we serve each year.

For over 37 years WPS has grown in strength and services to become one of the largest residential shelters in the state.  Furthermore, the shelter facility provides non-residential outreach services to a wide range of domestic violence victims in our 12 county service area which includes; Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Dickens, Garza, Hockley, King, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Terry and Yoakum counties.

“On behalf of the women and children that we serve, the Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers, I would like to thank each of you for your generosity and kindness in providing so many necessary gifts and financial assistance.  This not only helps adults to escape abuse and violence, but also provides children a safe haven and a healthy environment to heal and flourish.”

Sincerely,

Jason Henry
