DWC Founder Jill Halverson (right) with former DWC resident Miranda (October 2014).
The Jill Halverson Legacy Circle was created in 2009 to officially recognize DWC supporters who have affirmed their commitment to our community by including DWC in their future plans. Members of our planned giving circle extend the work of our founder, Jill Halverson. Jill’s original gift to the Downtown Women’s Center – taking money from her own down payment fund to rent the storefront that became our Day Center – represents the power of one person to house many. Jill created a lasting legacy, inspiring many others to empower their community with their own personal gifts.
