Helping individuals navigate and overcome the challenges of separation and divorce by providing access to legal information, support networks and professional resources. We believe all people can confidently navigate the process of family breakdown and divorce.
In 1990, two local women and a group of divorce professionals founded The Lilac Tree to offer women the necessary access to the support needed around divorce and separation. Today, The Lilac Tree serves over 2,000 separating and divorcing women per year.
Our board of directors consists of legal, financial, medical and theraputic divorce professionals. Our chair is Mark Smith, our Chair Elect is Nanette McCarthy, and our Executive Director, ex Officio, is Candace A. Browdy. See our full list of the Board of Directors and Board Emeritus.
As a non-profit, our organization cannot survive without passionate individuals who help cultivate and grow our efforts. From legal, mental health, administrative, marketing and web professionals, we have need to maintain and grow The Lilac Tree mission. Here is who we appreciate, and future volunteers we need.
