An online community of nonprofit organizations in western PA

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County  join Americans across the country to support victims of domestic violence and send the message that domestic violence is unacceptable in our community and in every community.

Domestic violence touches every one of us.  It fills emergency rooms and morgues.  It keeps employees from being able to work   It makes children fearful and angry.  It contributes to crime in our streets.  It destroys homes and families.

Domestic violence is everybody’s business, and we must all support efforts to end abuse.  Only by making a real commitment to stop domestic violence can we end this devastating problem.

Each of us must step up and do our part to stop domestic violence in our community. Visit to find out what you can do.
