WISH advocate works to fill need in community
October 18, 2018
Eryn Ruppert has worked with WISH (Women In Safe Homes) for two years as a resource advocate. According to their website, WISH is a Ketchikan-based nonprofit that works to "provide a safe place for victims, assist them as they explore the alternatives available to them, and support the choices they make as they strive to gain control of their lives."
Ruppert said she was drawn to the organization's mission and felt it was a great opportunity to help those in need. Ruppert will now be representing WISH in Wrangell, as well, as she will begin making monthly visits to the island.
