Your Real Champion: A New Lease on Life Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie
For the week of August 22, 2021, your Real Champions were Julie Avalos, Executive Director, and Lyn Schoenfeld, Esq, President of the Board of Directors, from the Domestic Abuse Project of Delaware County (DAP).
In 1976, after a Delaware County woman’s life ended as a result of domestic violence, a group of lawyers came together to form DAP. Many victims of abuse don’t want to talk about their pain. DAP encourages victims to speak out and come together to eliminate violence. DAP also offers emergency shelter, food, clothing, safety planning/counseling for parents and children, and legal services. Learn how you can help this important cause!
Each week we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community. Know someone who should be featured? Nominate them now!
