Colsaria Henderson serves as the Managing Advocate for the Family Violence Law Center (FVLC). As Managing Advocate, Colsaria oversees FVLC’s intervention services and works in collaboration with the Managing Attorney to facilitate direct client services. Her dedication to violence against women work developed early on and became her full time commitment in 1998.
Colsaria holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Social Work. She is passionate about empowerment-based service provision as well as macro-level policy change. She has a husband and two young children at home that help balance work and play. Colsaria continues to devote her life to the field in the hopes that her children, and the next generation, will be able to devote less.
