This program was named after Mary Gregory, a devoted counselor at DVRC until her death. This giving program reflects Mary’s kindness and generosity. We provide those who come to us for help with gift cards to local businesses to cover their basic needs.
- A gas card
- Lunch at a local restaurant
- Groceries at a local supermarket
- A pharmacy card to buy a prescription
- A gift card to a local clothing store
- A VISA/Mastercard debit card that can be used anywhere, for anything, a client might need
At all times during the year, this program provides a helping hand for those most vulnerable, those trying to change their lives and create a life free of the threat of violence.

– Words from a DVRC client
DVRC provides a comprehensive range of services for victims of domestic violence and their children, including a confidential Safe Home, Transitional Housing and Permanent Supportive Housing units, a Helpline & Drop-In Center, Support Groups, One-on-One Counseling and Court Advocacy.
How To Help
Volunteers are an integral part of our team, and help in a variety of ways through time, talent or treasure. Opportunities include work within our Drop-In Center, hosting an event, or making a gift, which directly impacts the clients we serve.
All of our services – residential, counseling, court advocacy – are provided free of charge to all of our clients regardless of their financial situation. Your gift allows us to continue this life-saving work by directly assisting clients and their children who are experiencing domestic violence.
WHAT IS A SAFETY PLAN?
A safety plan is a set of actions that can help lower your risk of being hurt by your partner. It includes information specific to you and your life that will increase your safety at school, home, and other places that you go on a daily basis.
