Unity House to Present Coordinated Community Response Award Marking Domestic Violence Awareness Month



Unity House and its Domestic Violence Services program will present its 2017 Coordinated Community Response Award to Barbara Devore, director of development of the Independent Living Center of the Hudson Valley, on Thursday, Oct. 19 at an event and art show marking Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Devore is being honored for her strong commitment to furthering accessibility and safety for victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who are living with a disability. “Barbara’s steadfast dedication to this population has enhanced the network and comprehensiveness of services available to victims and survivors, and we are grateful for her contributions to our community,” said Dave Warren, Unity House’s director of Domestic Violence Services.

The Coordinated Community Response Award is presented annually to an individual or agency that has demonstrated a commitment to victim safety, batterer accountability and collaboration with Unity House Domestic Violence Services and other programs that provide services to victims of domestic violence. The event, to be held at 6 p.m. at The Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy, will include an art show called “Through Our Eyes, Stories of Domestic Violence Survivors.” It is intended to bring awareness to domestic violence, serve as a beacon of hope for those who are victims of abuse, and celebrate the coordinated community response model that is essential to addressing the needs of victims of domestic violence.

In addition, Hair and Body Essentials, a Clifton Park salon and spa, will receive the Volunteer Leadership Award for its support of victims of domestic violence. Each year, the salon and its participating clients help provide holiday gifts and essentials to victims and their children.
