PCADV´s 60 community-based programs assisted 2,308 women, men and children during the 24-hour period of the national census of domestic violence services conducted by the National Network to End Domestic Violence.
Pennsylvania ranked seventh highest among states in total number of people served on the census day.
"The numbers for this one day alone show just how hard our programs work with limited resources and how great the demand is for these lifesaving services," PCADV Executive Director Peg Dierkers said.
