Domestic Violence Services (DVS) of Lancaster County

See You May 26!
Dear Friends of DVS, As a primary care clinician at Union Community Care during these stressful pandemic days, I regularly see women who are trying to survive with limited resources for themselves and their children. The pandemic’s isolation has permitted intimate partner violence to continue – in a very frightening way. At UCC, we ask our patients about their safety at home in many different ways, and I hope that by doing this, we are giving folks an opportunity to ask for help, whether through verbal information, the texting number in our bathrooms, or referral to our embedded social work and behavioral health staff.   In addition to supporting victims and survivors in my work, my husband, Lenny Walton, and I have personally supported DVS for many years in various ways – including introducing our friends and neighbors to this important cause. I would invite you to please join me at the first-ever DVS Mixer on May 26th and bring a friend to learn about DVS and widen our circle of caring.
