SafeHaven's Hafley to step down in 2015

Mary Lee Hafley

Mary Lee Hafley, president and chief executive officer of SafeHaven of Tarrant County, a nonprofit dedicated to domestic violence prevention, announced June 30 that she will retire in February 2015.
SafeHaven’s board of directors has hired Victory Search Group to begin the search for a new CEO.
“Mary Lee has worked for more than 20 years to provide immediate safety to victims of domestic violence and prevent its re-occurrence,” said Board Chairman Curt Osiek in a news release. “SafeHaven will miss her energy, wisdom and her powerful leadership at the local, state and national levels.”
Hafley joined The Women’s Shelter in 1991 as executive director. In 1998, she led the agency through a capital campaign to build a new 22,000-square-foot shelter on seven acres in Arlington. In 2005-2006, Hafley helped guide the merger of The Women’s Shelter and Women’s Haven of Tarrant County into SafeHaven of Tarrant County.
Since that time, Hafley has served as the organization’s president and CEO. Additionally, she serves as chairman of the board for the Texas Council on Family Violence.
“I am incredibly grateful for the support of board members, staff, donors and community partners throughout my tenure,” Hafley said. “This amazing journey transformed my life creating a deep passion for ending violence against women and girls that will never dissipate.”
