Past events in Luce County have included the Burger Bash Fundraiser; sponsored by the Newberry Fireman’s Association. We were able to raise over $1200, and promote awareness of our program through the event. We combined fun and challenging activities with learning about dating violence at the Wii Can Beat Violence Teen Event. Diane Peppler Resource Center also took part in the Luce County Child Advocacy Day by providing information to children and parents about “Good Touch, Bad Touch.” In 2016, and previous years, our office has teamed up with various service providers in Luce County to host an event called Project Homeless Connect. Last year we were able to help 82 families in need, including 68 children at the event.
Domestic Violence Task Force
Diane Peppler Resource Center has joined forces with local Law Enforcement, the Victim’s Advocate, and the Prosecuting Attorney to form a Domestic Violence Task Force in January 2017. The Force is dedicated to eradicating domestic violence within Luce County. We work as a joined effort to hold perpetrators accountable, enhance victims’ safety, and promote prevention within our home community. For more information about the Task Force, email our Outreach Advocate, Jessica Roberts, at robertsj at dprcenter.org, or call (906) 293-4853.
