Here to help

Not just for women.

The Clinton County Women’s Center provides community service, volunteer, and opportunities for internships.

The agencies role in the community is to educate, prevent, and support community members who experience violence or abuse either individually or significant others.

The agency serves women, men and their dependent children. During 2012, volunteers provided almost 6,000 hours of service equal to about $120,000 in-kind dollars, and provided over 1,498 days of housing to those seeking safe shelter. We would like to thank the community for their continued support; together we can make a difference.

During the month of October, The Clinton County Women’s Center pays tribute to victims and survivors of domestic violence. This past Tuesday, Oct. 1, kicked off Domestic Violence Awareness Month with their “No More” purple ribbon program in Triangle Park in downtown Lock Haven starting at 7 p.m.

We had a guest speaker from the community, held a candlelight ceremony and passed out purple ribbons.

The purple ribbon program began over 20 years ago as a visible gesture in support of victims and survivors and today is recognized as a symbol of the movement to end domestic violence.

“Together we can end domestic violence.”
