TODAY'S PROGRAM

Betsy Kilkenny with the Laurel House was our speaker today. Laurel House first opened its doors in 1980 for the purpose of providing hotline and emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. Now, nearly 40 years later, Laurel House has grown into a comprehensive domestic violence agency, providing supportive services, as well as dating violence and domestic violence prevention education throughout Montgomery County.

Although our programs and services have expanded and changed over the years, Laurel House’s commitment to the vision of “ending domestic violence in each life, home and community” remains as steadfast as ever.

Laurel House depends upon the support and generosity of the community to sustain its programs for victims and survivors of domestic violence and their children. There are many ways that you can help, including monetary donations, wish list items and volunteering. Please consider supporting the work of Laurel House in whatever ways you can. Your help allows us to bring safety and self-sufficiency to victims of domestic violence.
