Julie Hill, Human Options' 2017 DOVE Award HonoreeThe DOVE Award recognizes those who have made significant contributions to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and enabling women and children to lead violence free and healthy lives. 

Human Options is proud to present the 2017 DOVE Award to Julie Hill. As a devoted advocate for women’s rights, Julie has supported Human Options since 1993. While CEO of the US division of Costain Homes, she was one of four builders to participate in an unprecedented public-private partnership that resulted in the construction of Human Options’ emergency shelter, the first in California specifically designed for domestic violence victims. As board president, she led the organization through a period of substantial growth, strengthening the board, challenging boundaries and establishing effective business practices. She has remained passionately vigilant to the mission and vision of empowering clients to find safety, healing and a way forward.
