GREAT FALLS, Mont. -- The new Montana Air National Guard Sexual Assault Response Coordinator brings exceptional education and experience to work with her at the 120th Airlift Wing.
Debra Glenn, a licensed clinical social worker, earned her master's degree in social work from the University of Wyoming.
Before coming to work at MTANG in May, Glenn spent two and a half years working in the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office at Malmstrom Air Force Base. Her additional work experience includes time spent working for the Veterans Administration and for the Family Advocacy Program at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina.
Glenn wants Airmen to know the United States Air Force and MTANG is serious about preventing assaults and assisting the victims of assaults.
"If something does happen to somebody and they are sexually assaulted we can offer them all of the services possible to help them recover as quickly as possible," Glenn said. "I want to make sure they understand all of the benefits available to them."
Glenn's office is located in the 120th AW Headquarters Building. She serves as the SARC for MTANG Airmen but can also advise and offer referrals to family members or friends of members.
"They can walk into my office anytime or they can call my cellphone number 24/7," Glenn said. "I can meet with them here if they want or I can meet with them off base if they're more comfortable with that."
Victim advocates are volunteer Airmen who assist Glenn with the SAPR program. She said future public affairs products will be designed to introduce wing members to the VAs to highlight their responsibilities and show how they can be contacted.
Glenn said she is ready and prepared to assume the responsibilities of serving as the SARC and is excited to be welcomed into the MTANG family.
"Everybody here is very welcoming, very friendly," Glenn said. It's a nice change for me to know that I'll be working with the same people long term. I've been used to working with the active duty side of the house where there's a constant rotation and cycling of people."
Glenn is available for appointments to be made during the regular work week and during Guard drills. Her standard office hours are scheduled Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and during regularly scheduled drills, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Airmen can find her email address available on the global email address listing and locate her work phone number using the directory feature of their office telephone.
