Clara Reynolds
President & CEO
I am a sports fanatic!!!  Whether it is football, soccer, baseball, hockey, basketball or lacrosse, I love to watch sports teams in action.  I enjoy sports for many reasons, not the least of which is the way each individual comes together focused on a common goal.  I know you've heard the expression, "they run like a well-oiled machine."  For me, this phrase paints a picture of an efficient team.  

Just like in sports, it takes a team of people all working together to achieve the mission of the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay - to ensure that no one in our community has to face crisis alone.   Our team is comprised of social workers, EMT's, licensed therapists, crisis specialists and many others who work together on the front lines focused on one goal - to provide help to people in crisis.  However, there is an equally important team that make our work possible:  YOU - the individuals and organizations who financially support our organization...
Megan's Story: Courage in the Face of Trauma

Megan came to Corbett Trauma Center when she was bullied
after a sexual assault
Two years ago when Megan started 8th grade she was doing well in her classes and was a member of a cheerleading team. To meet her today, you would never guess that toward the end of that school year she experienced the worst event of her life.

When Megan was 14, she was invited to a party for local fans of a 17 yr. old social media "Vine" celebrity. She was thrilled when the he asked for everyone's contact information so he could stay in touch. She couldn't believe it when he reached out to her online and asked if she wanted to meet.

They met at a home in Tampa. At first, he was sweet and charming but soon made his intentions known. She resisted, but he forced himself on her. She left that day feeling ashamed, scared and traumatized.

Break the Silence at Robinson High

Clara Reynolds Addresses Students
at Robinson High
When Robinson High School students discovered that every 9 seconds someone in the U.S. becomes a victim of domestic violence, they immediately pledged to do something to raise awareness about domestic violence.

They worked with teachers and coaches to create a special event that shined a light on the "every 9 seconds" statistic. On Friday, January 15th, the students held the second annual "Break the Silence" night in conjunction with the boys' basketball game. Robinson students, teachers, and parents wore purple "Break the Silence" shirts and kept completely silent until the 9th point. When the 9th point was scored, they broke the silence with cheers and applause.

The Crisis Center's CEO, Clara Reynolds and The Spring's CEO, Mindy Murphy both addressed the crowd and encouraged people to seek help if they or their friends are a victim of domestic violence. Additional representatives from both organizations were on hand to provide resources and answer student's questions.
