Co-founder & Director
Raised in Newton, Massachusetts, Barry is a lifelong advocate for victims and survivors of domestic violence and is the driving force behind creating the American Family Center effort.
As such, he decided to “pay-it-forward” by combining his 25+ year career as an antiques, estate sale, and auctions professional with his advocacy by acquiring home goods on behalf of those transitioning from secure shelter to independent living.
Over the years his vision and advocacy has evolved to instruct the guidance and development of new and innovative prevention and support programs for the future.
