We’re thrilled to announce that Denny Civic Solutions is partnering with the Center for Victims as they prepare to launch their new capital campaign.

The campaign is designed to help the Center move to a new state-of-the-art facility in Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood, enabling them to serve more members of our community while expanding their program offerings through the creation of a new “Healing and Wellness Center” housed at the new facility.

The Healing and Wellness Center will serve as a vibrant community resource where anyone impacted by violence, abuse, or trauma can receive the support they need to recover and reach their maximum potential. It will also be a safe and accessible setting for those needing to escape the daily plague of trauma and violence in their lives. The “Healing and Wellness Center” will host educational exhibits, interactive activities for families, creative expression activities, and trauma-informed conflict resolution and coaching.

For more than 40 years, the Center for Victims has provided critical services to hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children victimized by any type of crime. More than just a domestic violence and sexual assault center, they are the most comprehensive provider of services for victims of all crime in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The Center tackles the issue of violence in our community in a variety of innovative ways regardless of how it is perpetrated. Their client is the community at large, and their goal is simple: to break the cycle of violence. They tackle this challenge via the three pillars of their mission statement:

· Healing trauma: the Center for Victims offers a wide variety of counseling and mediation services for victims of violence and abuse;

· Supporting victims: through uniquely tailored advocacy programs; and

· Creating social change for a more peaceful community: the Center trains and empowers community members and other professionals to resolve conflicts and support individuals who are suffering from the shattering effects of abuse and violence.

The work of the Center for Victims epitomizes our own mission statement here at Denny Civic Solutions – to help make the communities for which we work a far better place for all. We are incredibly excited for the opportunity to work with such an inspiring team of individuals.
