DVS Catalyst for Change Nomination

The DVS Catalyst for Change Award is presented to Individuals or organizations who have made significant contributions to the DVS mission to be a catalyst to end domestic violence in Lancaster County through direct service, advocacy or social change efforts.

The selection of the Award winner will be made by a committee comprised of members of the DVS Advisory Committee, the DVS Leadership Team/Staff, the Special Events committee and the DV Awareness Month committee.

Each nomination will be considered on its own merits, but also in relation to other nominations submitted. If the selection committee determines that there is no clear winner or that no nomination meets the established standards, an Award may not be presented for that year.

Please complete the Nomination Form and return to Christine Gilfillan, DVS Director, at or complete the form below. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, September 14, 2022.
