Melissa Wallace – Development Director

Melissa Wallace is a native of Kentucky. She and her husband, Steven, reside in Lagrange, KY with their daughter and golden retriever. Melissa loves to travel to see new places and she loves to read! Her favorite thing about Refuge for Women is seeing darkness overcome by beautiful light in the lives of the residents again and again. It is not one big thing that she loves the most, but a lot of little moments, almost daily, that remind her every day why she does this work. Her most recent favorite memory is when a transitional living resident offered for her to borrow one of her books saying “this book changed the way I see my Lord”. Wow, yes, and thank you!
