The Domestic Violence Center of the Santa Clarita Valley marked its 30th anniversary of providing education, intervention and prevention with a ceremony in Newhall Saturday.

For the past three decades the center has provided services to those who are victims of or have been affected by domestic violence, including offering shelter, counseling and outreach services and operating a crisis hotline to provide help for those that need it.

Currently there is a need and we are providing that need,” said Linda Davies, executive director of the center. “Santa Clarita has done a great job supporting us over the last 30 years.”

The center marked its anniversary Saturday with an event in Newhall, offering attendees a glimpse at the center's history and a chance to learn more about its programs and services.

Officials, including Santa Clarita Mayor Bob Kellar and City Councilwoman Marsha McLean, were on hand Saturday to honor the center for reaching 30 years.

We’ve got a great Domestic Violence Center doing phenomenal work here in Santa Clarita,” Kellar said. “Thank you to all the people who come together to serve so ably in our community.”

Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, also presented a resolution to the center marking its anniversary.

The education component, to let young people know what’s right and what’s wrong, is really important,” Wilk said.

And though the center reached a milestone, the eventual goal is for the kind of services it provides to no longer be needed.

Our job is to try to someday eradicate domestic violence,” Davies said.
