Hammons to lead WomenSource

By AccessWDUN Staff

WomenSource, a Gainesville-area non-profit that provides educational programming specifically for women, has named Blythe Hammons as its new executive director. 

Hammons joins the organization from local non-profit Gateway Domestic Violence Center where she has served since 2014 in various roles and most recently as advocacy supervisor.

"We are thrilled to welcome Mrs. Hammons to lead WomenSource," said Board Chair Shelley Shope. "Her experience in non-profit work and unique skill set working with women from all walks of life will be an asset to our organization where our mission is to provide educational programming to empower women."

Hammons begins her duties with WomenSource on Jan. 1, 2022. 

"When we moved here from New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, we quickly found that Gainesville is unlike any other community with its vast non-profit network and philanthropic spirit,” Hammons said. “I am thrilled to be selected to lead this organization and feel it is a natural transition in my passion for serving the women of our community.”

WomenSource was founded in 2007 in partnership with the North Georgia Community Foundation, The Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County and United Way of Hall County following a community needs assessment. WomenSource provides regular programming as a way to educate and connect women with one another in order to help women feel empowered.
