Leadership Lee County Class of 2022-2023 – Servicing the Domestic Violence Intervention Center (DVIC)
The Leadership Lee County Class of 2022-2023 would like to thank our sponsors for this year's service project at the Domestic Violence Intervention Center (DVIC of Lee County.) DVIC is the only agency of its kind in a five-county service area and provides free services to survivors of domestic violence, including a 24-hour crisis line, temporary emergency shelter, outreach services, referrals to other agencies, case management, legal advocacy, counseling, support groups, clothing, food, transportation, and more. The DVIC served 220 people per year on average since 2019, and 116 of those 220 were residents of Lee County. The organization relies heavily on donations from the community to be able to assist abuse survivors. Because of the generous support of our sponsors, Leadership Lee County was able to serve this fantastic organization by making the place feel more like a home with new updates including painting, flooring, lighting, and decor.
