Lucille Duguay, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified School Social Worker, established The Oak Hill Center for Relationship & Sexuality Education (CRSE) in 1995 to offer counseling and education. Having found a paucity of educational materials on safe relationships and sexual health for this vulnerable population, CRSE, under Lucille’s leadership, was successful in obtaining funding from local and national sponsors to develop new resources.
Lucille, who retired from her position in 2014, has been an indomitable advocate for this population with her vast work on sexual health and healthy relationships. She has presented at the National Association for the Dually Diagnosed, the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists, the UCLA School of Nursing, YAI National Institute for People with Disabilities, Susan G. Komen for the Cure National Conference, and the Developmental Disabilities Nursing Association. She is the author of numerous resources for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their providers on topics related to safe relationships, sexual health, and abuse prevention.
