Keep an Eye Out for Our Ribbons

Every October in communities across Chester County, DVCCC "Paints the Town Purple" with ribbons hung from the light poles. Special thanks to Colonial Gardens in Phoenixville for supplying these beautiful ribbons.

This year you'll find our ribbons hanging in:

  • West Chester

  • Kennett Square

  • Coatesville

  • Phoenixville

  • Downingtown

  • Oxford

  • Malvern

  • Lincoln University Campus

  • West Chester University - South Campus

We are proud to partner with the Brandywine Valley SPCA this October to help raise awareness!

Keep an eye on their social media all month long to learn more about the ways domestic violence and animal abuse intersect and to see the #DogsAgainstDomesticViolence rocking their purple bandanas for awareness month!

 We developed a book list - with both fiction and nonfiction selections - for you to explore throughout awareness month as a way to learn more about this issue.
