JACKSON, Tenn. - After ending the year in controversy, the Wo/men's Resource and Rape Assistance Program, also known as WRAP has started the new year with a new leader.

The domestic abuse organization, welcomed Daryl Chansuthus as executive director. She replaces Margaret Cole, who left after a shocking state audit report found the non-profit misused thousands of dollars in grant money.

Chansuthus said she has implemented a corrective action plan and is confident things will be different.

"What audits do is help an organization identify weaknesses these weaknesses have been identified," said Chansuthus.
"We've developed plans to address those weaknesses and were already moving forward with the implementation of that plan."

She said she is committed to strengthen the organization's partnership with the community.

"We also want to strengthen our partnership with the community because working with victims of sexual abuse is not something an agency does alone its a community effort," said Chansuthus.

She says she is also hoping to increase the number of volunteers with the organization.
