The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence has informed Survivors Inc. it plans to transfer domestic violence services to an “established, nearby program selected by PCADV to provide continuity of services.”
A group of community volunteers constituted a new board of directors of Survivors Inc. in February after the majority of past board members resigned and the previous executive director resigned without notice.
“A group of people who are deeply committed to this community stepped up and tried to ensure that victims of domestic violence receive the services they deserve. Unfortunately, the hole was already dug way too deep. The board is working with PCADV to attempt a smooth transition of services,” Alex J. Hayes, board chair since March 2019, said.
Hayes, who is also managing editor of the Gettysburg Times, assured he will keep the public informed on how victims of domestic violence can receive services.
