Nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States (NCADV).
1383 – that’s the number of survivors Peace River Center’s Domestic Violence Program served in FY21. Survivors, that’s how we refer to each individual who walks through our doors for service. In their previous life, they were victims – but not anymore.
Survivors need support. And we need you! PRC is the only certified DV shelter in Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties. We challenge you to find your support system of three friends to help you make a greater impact. Each of you contributing $13.83 to help survivors and their children, find a safe life away from a violent partner.
At PRC’s Domestic Violence Program we engage each victim to take control and find independence as a survivor. PRC’s DV Program provides an array of free services in Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties which include: shelter, counseling, education and professional training, safety planning, court advocacy, and ongoing support. PRC shelters provide a confidential safe location for survivors in Lakeland and Sebring.
