Kim Hawkins, Vice President

Kim Hawkins is the co-founder and Vice President of SHIELD Task Force. Kim has worked in the Marion County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for the past twelve years. During the last seven years of those years, she has served as the office’s Victim Advocate.

In her role as Victim Advocate, Kim focuses on child physical and sexual abuse cases. Her goal is to help children process their trauma and flourish in spite of it by providing constant support during the judicial process and beyond.

What makes SHIELD different is that we are inviting survivors to teach us how to better respond to abuse victims. We are listening to and learning from them to become better than ever at fighting child abuse. It takes all of the disciplines involved in SHIELD to accomplish our one main goal — which is to better serve abuse survivors in Marion County.
