Since 1989 Elmire Raven has given unwavering support and advocacy at My Sister’s House in the Tri-County area. Her passion and dedication for the work, that has helped hundreds of families, is inspirational. Her 25 years of service was honored by proclamation of “Elmire Raven Day” by the mayors of Charleston, North Charleston, Mt. Pleasant and Summerville on June 26th. There was also a recognition ceremony in honor of Elmire held by My Sister’s House Inc. There were remarks from numerous friends and colleagues of Elmire including SCCADVASA’s very own Training Coordinator, Donna Thompson. The Mount Moriah Praise & Worship Team performed and a presentation of gifts was made by Melva Zinaich, My Sister’s House Board President.
We admire her dedication to making the state a violence-free South Carolina. She has become an influential non-profit leader, educator, advocate for victim rights, and an ambassador for survivors of domestic violence.
We at SCCADVASA would like to say thank you and congratulations to Elmire!
