Kim Caplan, Advocacy Services Director

Kim Caplan, Director of Advocacy Services, has been with Community Works since 2012. After beginning her career as an elementary school teacher, Kim saw how deeply families were impacted by trauma. She returned to school to pursue a Masters’ degree in Women, Sexuality, and Gender Studies which led her to her work with survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

While not at work, Kim enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, reading, swimming, and relaxing in warm weather. Kim is passionate about the work of supporting survivors directly in crisis, as well as making a tangible difference in addressing the needs of the community. Kim says, “The best part of my job is recognizing there is hope.”
