The SCV Domestic Violence Center Celebrates 30 Years

The Santa Clarita Valley Domestic Violence Center has helped more than 10,000 victims of domestic violence over the past 30 years.  

“Domestic violence does not discriminate- it affects women, children and men across various socioeconomic structures throughout every neighborhood and community in the valley.Thousands of families now have lives free of domestic violence,” said Linda Davies, director of the SCV Domestic Violence Center\

Officials of the Domestic Violence Center will be hosting a 30th anniversary celebration at the Real Life Church’s Savialocation.

“In this 30th Anniversary Celebration, we thank the Santa Clarita Valley for supporting the only domestic violence center in the 200-square-miles that encompass the SCV and surrounding areas,” Davies said.

The celebration will be on August 24th from 4 p.m. through 6 p.m. where music, refreshments, appetizers, and the premiere of a documentary that tells the story of the Domestic Violence Center will be provided.
