Online Campus Graduate Named Executive Director of Transitional Housing Facility

Nanda Danitschek, a graduate of the Master of Arts in Industrial and Organizational Psychology Online Campus program, was recently named as executive director of Stepping Stone, an emergency shelter and transitional housing facility in Michigan City, Ind.

Danitschek, who had a difficult childhood marked by post-traumatic stress disorder and poverty, is passionate about changing the lives of those impacted by sexual assault and domestic violence.

“The Stepping Stone emergency shelter provides 24-hour crisis relief for victims of domestic abuse or sexual assault, and their children, along with rape recovery programs,” said Danitschek.

Stepping Stone is primarily funded by grants from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute in coordination with the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault, as well as staff development and community outreach.

“I need a mission and what could be more important than homeless victims of sexual assault,” said Danitschek. “It feels good to know that I’m making an impact and helping make change.”
