This is part of Healthy Adams County’s 25-year anniversary monthly Gettysburg Times column.

Healthy Adams County was created in 1996 and conducted its first Community Health Needs Assessment that year. Family Violence was listed as a top ten need by the community and the Domestic Violence Task Force was one of the first task forces created by the organization to address this need. The task force started in 1998 and is still going strong today.

Kathy Gaskin is the executive director of Healthy Adams County; Detective Wade Laue, is with the Adams County District Attorney’s office and chair of Healthy Adams County’s Domestic Violence Task Force.
