About Tammy Sharpe – She has been in the domestic violence and sexual assault field for over 10 years. Tammy formally worked as a Domestic Violence Intervention Specialist for Harmony Place until it’s closing in October 2013. While at Harmony Place she served on several local boards as well as a state wide Accreditation Committee that set the standards for services and visited agencies across the state to ensure the standards were being met. Recognizing the huge need for domestic violence services in Front Royal and Warren County she joined with Faithworks, Inc. to write a grant proposal to the United Way that would allow services to start under a fiscal sponsorship. Since the beginning of Phoenix Project in May 2014 she has served as Executive Director.
Before beginning work in this field she volunteered for an organization that provided assault prevention services in elementary schools and volunteered on several PTO boards.
Tammy is a native of Front Royal and raised her now grown children in this community. The health of this community is very important to her.
About Phoenix Project – The Phoenix Project began providing services to those affected by domestic violence who are living in Front Royal/Warren County in May 2014. Services were made possible through a grant from the United Way Front Royal/Warren County. United Way Front Royal/Warren County continues to be our umbrella agency until the application for our own 501(c)3 is obtained.
Phoenix Project is a member of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance. We currently are receiving funding through the Virginia Department of Social Services and plan to apply for accreditation in the near future.
We want to provide victims a safe, nonjudgmental, confidential place to tell their stories and explore their options. Our services are victim-centered, meaning that the victim guides the process. We want to empower victims so that they are able to live a life safe from abuse.
Note from Team Waller:
In late March 2016, we opened a new space on Main Street in the Middle of Main building. It is called Team Waller’s “Open House: Meet in the Middle” and will serve as a resource to our community. We will offer a wealth of real estate and community information, as well as cutting edge technology to learn more about listings, the buying process, and our local community attractions and resources. This space isn’t just for Team Waller; it is for the entire community. We will open our doors to community groups to educate the public about the causes that are close to their hearts and also offer our space as a meeting venue to anyone in need of a local location. Helping our community grow and serve as a resource to our neighbors is “What Matters” to us.
