The Carteret News-Times featured an article on “2020 Women Heroes on the Front Lines” in the Sunday, January 17, 2021 edition. Several women leaders in our community were listed – all heading up programs that deal with many facets of recovery and resilience in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Among those names was Dr. Gwen Roberts, the Board Chair of Carteret Partnership for Children. Gwen is the Executive Director of the Carteret County Rape Crisis Program, leading a staff of 3 to educate, serve and advocate for those in need. She and her staff are committed to keeping their doors open, despite the pandemic, and their crisis line available 24/7/365.
