In 1976, a group of volunteers came together with a vision to keep battered women and their children safe from violence.

Within a week of the first shelter opening in Northeastern PA in 1978, it was filled to capacity, showing how needed the services they provide were. They are still as needed today as they were then.

The Domestic Violence Service Center now serves the women and children of both Luzerne and Carbon counties in Pennsylvania.



In addition to emergency shelter and transitional housing, the center offers free and confidential services such as crisis intervention and counseling. They also offer a 24 hour hotline to help those in immediate need.

Seeking to give battered women and their children a safe environment and a chance at a violence-free future, the Domestic Violence Service Center strives to provide safety and empowerment for victims of violence by reminding them they are not alone.

As a Corporate Sponsor for the Domestic Violence Service Center, Sundance Vacations sponsors their yearly Laugh Out Loud event to promote laughter and remind victims of violence that there is hope.
