MCLEAN, Va. - Nov. 6, 2013 - PRLog -- Fairfax, VA — SafeSpot Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) of Fairfax County is proud to announce the selection of Laly C. Goodmote, Esq., as its Executive Director.  Ms. Goodmote was selected based on her considerable experience as Director of Artemis House, legal specialist for the Fairfax County Office for Women and Domestic & Sexual Violence Services and as a social worker with the Fairfax County Area Agency on Aging.

Currently, Fairfax County does not have a physical, permanent center for abused children.  The goal of SafeSpot is to open a safe, child-friendly center where child abuse cases can be investigated and follow-on care can be provided.  Volunteers came together on October 6, 2013 to produce a brunch fashion show held at the Bloomingdale's Tysons Corner store, which not only raised funds toward the building of an advocacy center to service the Fairfax and surrounding Northern Virginia area, but in addition, brought awareness to the devastating issues surrounding child abuse in all of its forms and to provide knowledge about the advocacy that the group is doing.  The fashion show served as the area's formal introduction to SafeSpot of Fairfax, their mission and vision all while developing a grass roots following to ensure its long term success.  The SafeSpot Board's immediate goal for 2013 was to hire an Executive Director that would shepherd the development of the advocacy center and build relationships to further SafeSpot's mission to the community.

“Ms. Goodmote’s experience uniquely qualifies her to help SafeSpot bring the children’s advocacy center project to fruition,” said Bridget Rainey, SafeSpot Board member.
