In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, please bring a new or gently used adult size coat or a cash donation to support Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania in their efforts to shelter and provide services to women escaping abusive relationships. Together, we can end domestic violence!
Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the “Day of Unity” held in October 1981 and conceived by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The “Day of Unity” soon evolved into a week, and in October of 1987, the first National Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed. In 1989 Congress passed Public Law 101-112, officially designating October of that year as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Such legislation has been passed each year since.

She earned a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology degree from Chatham University. She is a Certified Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner. Angela credits God, energy medicine, and other holistic modalities with healing her life. Angela presents at workshops with OMA Center for Mind, Body, and Spirit in which she teaches self-care techniques from Donna Eden Energy Medicine courses to encourage the body's natural ability to regain peace, health, and happiness!
As this month comes to an end, the important discussion it brings to the forefront about domestic violence’s horrific repercussions should not.
