Pathfinder Federal Credit Union’s Chief Executive Officer, Tyler Disburg, has been nominated for a 2023 Purple Ribbon Award. The Purple Ribbon Awards are the first comprehensive awards program honoring the countless heroes of the domestic violence movement, including advocates, programs, shelters, survivors and members of the community support system. The Purple Ribbon Awards are dedicated to ensuring all heroic efforts to help victims of domestic violence receive acknowledgment and applause.
Winners include entries from the United States and Canada. Working in the domestic violence field can often feel like an uphill battle. The annual Purple Ribbon Awards offer a moment of reflection, celebration and idea-sharing. It sheds light on the remarkable efforts that would otherwise go unrecognized.
Mr. Disburg’s work related to domestic violence is done locally through his involvement with Self Help Center of Casper, Wyoming. Self Help Center provides immediate direct assistance necessary for victims to obtain medical care and interact with the criminal justice system, referrals to local resources and legal support agencies, threat assessments, assistance filing for victim compensation, safety planning and obtaining family violence protection orders, stalking orders and sexual assault protection orders.
Additionally, Self Help Center offers a 24-hour assistance hotline, mental health counseling and a Safe House.
The Self Help Center’s Safe House is currently being relocated to the Self Help Center Campus. The newly constructed Safe House was only possible with the support of volunteers like Mr. Disburg, the generosity of many community donors, and the visionary leadership of Self Help’s Executive Director Jennifer Dyer.
Of course, none of the efforts of Self Help Center would be possible without local financial support. This past weekend Self Help held its annual Lip Sync Battle at the Parkway Best Western in Casper. This event raised over $87,000.00 that will be used to support mental health, domestic violence prevention and substance abuse education.
