In-house Volunteer Award

Bernice Tucker

  
Bernice Tucker is a very special long-time volunteer with Her Justice. Bernice’s passion for the Her Justice mission arises from her own experience as a victim of domestic violence. In 1996, Bernice contacted Her Justice (then inMotion) and asked for help to file for a divorce. With the assistance from Her Justice, Bernice secured a divorce and moved on from her abusive relationship. Since that time, she has been a passionate advocate for other Her Justice clients. In 2002, Bernice was instrumental in founding the Women’s Empowerment Circle whereby she and other clients provided mentoring and support to current clients. In 2005, this culminated in a Day of Empowerment which brought together a number of resources centered on employment, housing, career development and self-care. In 2015, Bernice and former members of the Women’s Empowerment Circle approached the new leadership at Her Justice and asked to start a new women’s empowerment group to help Her Justice clients move forward with their lives. Because of Bernice’s enthusiasm and determination, the Her Justice Client Network launched in October 2015 and has been a tremendous success. The monthly Client Network meetings provide current and former Her Justice clients with a safe space to support and empower each other, share resources and connect with Her Justice staff.

In addition to her on-going support of Her Justice clients, throughout the years, Bernice has been an active volunteer at fundraising events including our Photography Auction & Benefit and the Story by Story stair climb. Bernice was the star cheerleader at our past stair climb event, loudly cheering on our climbers at every step and thanking them for their commitment to Her Justice. Thank you, Bernice, for your many years of commitment to Her Justice and the women we serve!
