A Message from the Executive Director
After 18 years of dedicated service, Julie Proctor is retiring from her role of Executive Director at S.A.F.E. House.
In 1994 Ms. Proctor cofounded S.A.F.E. House, along with her husband Judge Ken Proctor and other dedicated community partners. She also served on the agency’s Board of Directors from 1995 until 2003. Ms. Proctor has earned numerous awards during her tenure, including HopeLink’s Certificate of Appreciation Award, the National Department of Justice Certificate of Appreciation Award, a Certificate of Recognition from Touro University, and the Henderson Civitan Club Distinguished Service Award. She was also a graduate of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce’s “Leadership Henderson” program in 2011. Since S.A.F.E. House’s inception, the agency has served over 85,000 individuals and their children through safe shelter, advocacy, outreach and education, and counseling. Ms. Proctor’s impact on Southern Nevada through S.A.F.E. House is truly immeasurable. Ms. Proctor will continue to serve S.A.F.E. House in both a part-time and volunteer capacity in order to ensure a smooth transition into the agency’s next chapter.
We are excited to announce that Beth Flory will be assuming the role of Executive Director of S.A.F.E. House on November 1, 2021. Ms. Flory brings a wealth of both education and experience to this critical leadership role. She joined the S.A.F.E. House team in 2009, working in the emergency shelter and answering the crisis hotline. For almost 5 years, Ms. Flory filled the role of Children’s Advocate. In 2014, she then transitioned into administration, assisting the agency with a variety of tasks, including human resources, bookkeeping, volunteer coordination, and fundraising events. Ms. Flory has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology, a master’s degree in Human Resource Management, and a Society for Human Resource Management Certified Professional designation. She also has over 14 years of total management experience, which includes mentoring and leading supervisory level employees. Ms. Flory will be a strong leader of both S.A.F.E. House, and in the movement to end intimate partner violence in our community.
