LOCK HAVEN — Roads to Peace and Lock Haven UPMC have been working together a lot more since the new SAFE-T program launched.

Lock Haven UPMC notified the SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) Team about the SAFE-T program during winter of 2019. Roads to Peace was willing to help anyway they could to ensure that their clients were served appropriately when Sexual Assault victims would go to the ER.

The Lock Haven UPMC ER SANE Nurses have collected items to donate for clients of Roads to Peace. These items will help their clients during this COVID-19 pandemic and include Clorox wipes, laundry detergent, shampoo, and body wash.

Roads to Peace is very grateful for the donation and will be sure to use the items efficiently and effectively to help keep the clients safe and comfortable during their time of crisis, Amanda Pease, fiscal coordinater at Roads of Peace said.

Roads to Peace is funded by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD), Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV), Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR), Allstate Foundation, Clinton County Community Foundation, Clinton County United Way, and individuals that continue to donate to their cause.
