Becky McDonough, Executive Vice President of the Hopewell-Prince George Chamber of Commerce, sees The James House as a well-run business that has raised the bar for profit and nonprofit businesses.
The Hopewell-Prince George Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization serving 400 businesses to promote economic growth, workforce development, and community integration. In 2001 The James House joined the chamber with the goal of educating businesses about the impact of sexual and domestic violence and stalking in the community. To this end, The James House offers cost-free training and educational programming for local businesses, houses of faith, and schools.
McDonough says, “The James House takes a very sensitive and difficult subject and breaks it down in a way that we’re all comfortable addressing it and wanting to help eradicate it in our community.”
