Honoring twenty five years of advocacy
An advocate for displaced women is being honored at Santa Fe College as she retires after 25-years of service as the coordinator of the Displaced Homemaker program. Nancy Griffin says there is still a need to help women.

Griffin began helping women in north central Florida in 1986 and has helped more than 35-hundred women rebuild their lives after the death of a spouse or divorce
