Support for A Woman’s Place

Club members Fred Edelman and Dolly Sokol, together with representatives of the Villas of Shady Brook Barbara Bloomberg and Susan Tobin, are continuing their efforts to coordinate an information evening about and fundraiser for "A Woman's Place",

a safe and nurturing domestic violence organization located in Doylestown, Bucks County.  In addition to a shelter, 24-hour hotline, counseling, and other emergency first response services, we have an education department that reaches out to people of all ages and professions.

A Woman's Place began as a storefront, drop-in domestic violence counseling center in Sellersville. The first woman seeking safety came with her two children to the tiny, one-room shelter apartment on Christmas Eve 1976.  Since then, more than 2550 women, men, seniors and teens have had a compassionate ear and a skilled hand that helped them through physical and emotional abuse.

Memberss of the Shady Brook community, Pennsylvania and New Jersey Rotarians and other interested and concerned citizens can contact our Club (see list of Contacts on the Officers, Board Members and Activity Charis page of this website) for more information.  The event is scueduled for 7:00 PM on May 21st at the Villas of Shady Brook club house in Langhorne.
