Terri Heckman’s name is synonymous with helping women in time of crisis. She has been CEO of the Summit and Medina County Battered Women’s Shelter (BWS) since 1995 and CEO of the Summit and Medina County Rape Crisis Center since 2005. Unlike other agencies that focus on victims of all types of crime, BWS is the only agency in Summit/Medina County that focuses on family violence, intervention and prevention. In 2015, the BWS assisted over 6,000 Summit and Medina County individuals affected by domestic violence.
