The 3rd Story

Bill Lightfoot served in law enforcement for 36 years. His last few years were spent working on domestic violence and elder abuse. For Bill, every client is personal.

As a police officer, Bill witnessed the effects of domestic violence on children. The impact is so great that 14% of men and 36% of women who are incarcerated suffered childhood abuse. He believes police need to not only respond to domestic violence but respond appropriately. The James House provides that kind of training. He knows that when he refers them to The James House that they will get the help they need to gain control of their lives and move forward.
