PA State Budget Impasse - Action Needed!

UPDATE:  As of January, some state funds are now flowing to AWP (and other domestic violence agencies in PA) as well as some institutions fortunate enough to have been deemed “essential services” by the state. But the same cannot be said for many other nonprofit organizations in Bucks County. These charities are important partners in the network that serves, strengthens, and improves the quality of life for all who live and work in our community.  

Exceeding the half year mark, the state budget impasse is now setting new records in uncharted territory. Please contact your Pennsylvania state legislator and let them know that the lack of a complete and final PA budget is not acceptable.

  • By glancing at the title, you might assume that this will be about someone’s first boyfriend or girlfriend. But I am talking about a different kind of love, a love that has been forgotten, or in some cases never known.

  • “At least we stayed married,” is just another one-liner you don’t want to hear. Being in a domestically abusive family that never separates can be testing on a child’s soul. When a parent constantly talks about divorce but never gets one can cause a child to envy peers with divorced parents.

  • No one truly knows how strong they are until summoned to learn. If you are living your life, chances are you’ve already put your inner strength to the test. Every day we are faced with some form of adversity from losing a job, getting divorced, or feeling alone to the severity of disease, poverty or sheer survival.

  • How are YOU going to make 2016 be a BETTER year for YOU? I hope you received a few gifts during the holidays and that not only did you receive them, but also that you opened them and are now using them.

  • Midwinter brings the longest nights of the year. We respond, both traditionally and instinctively, by adding extra lights in our homes that comfort and cheer us, and help keep the darkness at bay. In the quieter moments of our holidays, if we pause to tune into nature’s rhythms, we may also enjoy a period of rest and reflection.
