Healthcare Council sponsored the “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” event for AWARE, Inc. The walk, held on April 29, 2017, is designed to raise funds and community awareness of domestic violence. The funds raised benefit AWARE, Inc., an organization that provides assistance in crisis, provides support services and residential services to victims of domestic, emotional, elder and sexual violence. AWARE, Inc, is based in Sharon, Pennsylvania and offers services throughout Mercer County and surrounding areas.

The newest residential house, the Brandi Montgomery House, was dedicated in May 2017 and is now open in Grove City, Pennsylvania. The house was jointly developed by AWARE, Inc. and Center Presbyterian Church in Grove City.

Jane Montgomery, vice president of Clinical and Quality  Services for Healthcare Council, serves on the Board of Directors of AWARE, Inc. She can be reached at montgomj@hcwp.org.
