We wanted to share some exciting news! We are extraordinarily proud of Rose Brooks Center’s CEO, Lisa Fleming, and her inclusion in the Kansas City Business Journal’s “Twenty to Know.” We all know that Lisa is a determined advocate and clear voice for survivors of domestic violence and removing the barriers to safety victims face throughout our community. We collectively thank Lisa for her leadership, care, and advocacy.
From the article:
“These nonprofit leaders are fighting the good fight for causes in KC. If you and your company are committed to giving back to the community, these people need to be in your network. Fleming was a natural to lead the Kansas City shelter for domestic violence victims when Susan Miller retired in 2021. Fleming had spent the previous 19 years as COO of Rose Brooks Center and before that had been an advocate for the nonprofit, giving her a view of operations, philosophy and direction from the bottom up through the strategic planning process. The nonprofit provided more than 64,000 nights of shelter for 634 adults and children in 2022, as well as 135 pets. Fleming is a longtime volunteer for KC Pet Project and State Line Service League.”
