HARRISBURG, Pa., (January 16, 2024) — Following a request for proposals in December 2023, an internal review committee at the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV) has selected A Woman’s Place (AWP) to provide domestic violence services in Bucks County.
PCADV is currently funding AWP to provide domestic violence services in Bucks County through March 31, 2024. The current contract will be extended through June 30, 2024, with a new two-year contract to begin July 1, 2024.
PCADV has and will continue to work closely with AWP staff and board members to ensure quality services to survivors in Bucks County.
“PCADV is committed to supporting A Woman’s Place as they continue to provide essential, life-saving assistance to victims and survivors of domestic violence in Bucks County,” said Susan Higginbotham, CEO of PCADV.
Victims and survivors looking for help in Pennsylvania can visit PCADV.org to find their local domestic violence program or call the 24-hour National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
Founded in 1976, the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV) was the nation’s first statewide domestic violence coalition. Each year, a network of 59 local domestic violence programs provides free and confidential services to nearly 90,000 victims of domestic violence and their children in all 67 counties of the commonwealth. The local programs and Coalition form interconnecting links in a chain of services and support to help victims and survivors find safety, obtain justice, and build lives free of abuse.
