Domestic Violence Service Center - a path to safety and a shelter from abuse


“An Empty Place At The Table”

Displays place settings in remembrance

of local victims who were murdered

as a result of domestic violence.


An additional place has been set for

All Victims of domestic violence.


The empty place left at the table

is a reflection of the devastating reality

of domestic violence.


Victims of domestic violence,

regardless of race, religion

or socio-economic status,

leave an empty place at their table

whenever they are forced

to flee their homes for safety,

or when their lives are taken

at the hands of a batterer.


Please take a moment to honor the memory of the Luzerne County

men, women and children who lost their lives to domestic violence over the years.
