Mission Statement

The mission of Laurel House is to provide safe haven for abused women and their children, to raise public awareness about domestic violence and to advocate for social change against domestic violence.

Description

Laurel House operates the only emergency domestic violence shelter in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The shelter was founded by the Women's Center of Montgomery County in 1980. In 1981, Laurel House was incorporated as an independent nonprofit organization.

Laurel House is well known as a safe place to heal, but in the past 20 years our programs have expanded. Today, in addition to our 24-hour hotline and shelter, Laurel House offers transitional housing, medical advocacy, legal advocacy, community counseling and support groups, support and training to law enforcement personnel, children's advocacy and many volunteer and service opportunities . The need for our services has increased along with community awareness. Laurel House invites and needs your support as we continue our work to end domestic violence.

My mother Theresa Bernick firmly believed that this is the safe haven for woman who needed protection from abuse. She is no longer alive as of 2 years this May 22. She lives within me with her words of the Laurel House. I work with a corporation that has many donations towards the needs of this organization. I would love to see her admiration for the importance she imbeded in me to go forward as ongoing tribute to the services of my deceased mother. This organization is exactly what women need when they have no where to turn, and need the self confidence that is there in the house to move on successfully! Sincerely MAry Bernick Kohl
