DADE CITY -- The former director of the West Pasco Salvation Army's domestic violence program, who resigned after her boss proposed cutting services, accepted a job Wednesday overseeing a new program with the county's other domestic violence shelter.
Stephanie Walley will coordinate Sunrise of Pasco County's portion of an emergency response team, which will provide counseling and other services for Pasco children in homes with domestic violence.
Sunrise will build the team with Family Continuity Program, the non-profit agency that oversees foster care and other services for children of troubled Pasco families.
Walley will start next week and work in west Pasco, said Penny Morrill, Sunrise's chief executive officer. The emergency response team should begin operating this summer.
Walley, 39, resigned her previous job last month after the Salvation Army unsuccessfully tried to cut its services for domestic violence victims.
