womansplaceAbout the Organization: A Woman's Place is a community-based social change organization in Bucks County committed to the empowerment of women and ending intimate and domestic violence. In addition to offering direct victim services, A Woman's Place offers prevention education programs and advocacy.

DPC Engagement: For several years, our church has supported the Peace Works Camp, a summer program for elementary aged children to nurture the concepts of personal power and worth and to help students learn to identify and form healthy, violence-free relationships by focusing on how and when to seek assistance with problem. In 2011, DPC funded the development of a teen line, which gives young people a more accessible way to ask for help and seek information about domestic violence.
