One of the elements of a successful nonprofit- the ability to move legislation and have a voice at the table for your mission, community and clients. Sandy Bowen, National Safe Place Executive Director, is a successful advocate and leader. She has fostered the Safe Place program since its infancy, becoming National Safe Place's first executive director in January 2001. A committed youth advocate with a proven record of results during her quarter century in the field, she is responsible for managing the youth education and outreach program, which includes identifying national collaborative partners, recruiting board leadership and securing corporate sponsors. She was intricately involved in expanding the local Safe Place model -- started in 1983 as an outreach effort of the YMCA of Greater Louisville -- into other states. Bowen later served as the Associate Director of YMCA Safe Place Services and was responsible for managing the Louisville youth shelter agency in addition to the National Safe Place efforts.
