Anita Allen, founder and president of Allen Advisory Group, was named as a distinguished honoree for the Center for Hope and Safety’s upcoming Annual Gala on April 13, 2015. She will be recognized for her exceptional effort in raising roughly $2,065,000 during a successful capital campaign that funded the purchase and renovation of the Center for Hope and Safety’s newest building, which houses all non-emergency services as well as the administrative headquarters.

“The co-chairs want to thank all the people that supported the capital campaign,” said Allen. “The new building will act as a launching pad for the future success of the agency.”


The Center for Hope and Safety purchased the building after seeing the need to provide community-based services for those that do not need emergency aid from its shelter but still require support. The new building’s primary functions include a creative arts therapy program, an outreach office, and the administration headquarters. Before the campaign started, it was initially estimated that it would take at least 3 full years to raise the funds for the Community Services Center. But Allen, her co-chairs, and the Capital Campaign Committee were able to reach the goal in 2 years.

When Allen is not working with Fortune 1000 businesses and entrepreneurial start-up companies as president of her own consulting firm, she tirelessly works with the Center for Hope and Safety to support their mission of assisting women and children that are victims of domestic violence. Allen was a past president of the Center for Hope and Safety Board for 5 years and currently serves on the board of the National Association of Corporate Directors New Jersey (NACDNJ).
