Support DVS in the ExtraGive – Friday, November 20, 2020

Since last year’s ExtraOrdinary Give, Domestic Violence Services of Lancaster County has served 1,500 survivors and their children with safe & secure housing, legal services, and supportive counseling to ensure a future free from domestic violence, an issue that continues to be in the forefront of our news cycle.
