Announcing NRCDV's New Chief Executive Officer

Monday, March 04, 2024

HARRISBURG, PA, MARCH 4, 2024 – We are pleased to share an exciting update from The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV). After an extensive search process to find a leader who embodies proven leadership, a commitment to centering the voices of survivors and values the importance of amplifying the needs of marginalized communities, we are excited to welcome our new CEO, Ms. Pamela Jacobs, J.D.  

Ms. Jacobs is a leading advocate, attorney, and trainer in the field of sexual and domestic violence response and prevention, most recently serving as Executive Director of the New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence (NJCEDV). Under her leadership, the team at NJCEDV achieved remarkable milestones, including a significant increase in funding within a five year period, the establishment of a statewide Domestic Violence Housing First initiative, and successfully advocated for increased funding and support for domestic violence agencies and culturally specific organizations.

In addition to leading at the state level in Kansas, South Carolina, and New Jersey, she is also a strategic consultant, author, and speaker. Often referred to as “the advocate’s advocate,” Ms. Jacobs has built and delivered trainings to military personnel, judges, advocates, and multidisciplinary professionals for over two decades. 

As a survivor of abuse and homelessness herself, Pamela has dedicated her life and career to ensuring all survivors – especially those who are the most marginalized – have access to the resources and support they need and deserve.

"I am deeply honored to join the NRCDV team," said Jacobs. "Together, we will work to enhance our provision of critical resources, training, and support to communities nationwide, as we strive towards a future free from domestic violence and all forms of oppression." 

As the Chair of the Board, I am confident that Ms. Jacobs is the right leader to guide us into this new chapter of growth and impact. We are eager to work with her to strengthen and transform our efforts to end domestic violence. We invite you to join us in extending a warm welcome to Ms. Jacobs as we embark on this important journey together.
