 Greene County Coalition Against Domestic Violence

ACCESS provides outreach services to all residents of Greene County. The GCCADV consists of proactive community members collaborating to increase awareness of domestic and sexual abuse and provide community education within Greene County.

The GCCADV meets the third Friday of every month for a lunch meeting. Coalition members plan awareness activities, pool resources and combine efforts in order to effect social change in the areas of domestic and sexual abuse.


 

ACCESS and the Greene County Coalition hold the Clothesline Project Display at the Greene County High School every April. The Clothesline Project is a visual display of the experiences of sexual assault surviviors and the people who support them. Below are some photos of the project and a group of area nurses who stopped by to see the project.
