SVDP-SF Panel Discussion Series

In order to increase the overall community engagement of SVDP-SF, it is proposed that quarterly panel discussions take place at the Community Office starting in Q1 of 2019. The panel discussions should touch on topics pertaining to SVDP’s program areas (Homeless Services and Domestic Violence). Panel Discussion should take place on weekdays or early evening and are anticipated to last no more than 90 minutes including a Q&A session and networking opportunity. Stay tuned for upcoming panel discussion events!



Conversations is a monthly gathering to discuss the impact of domestic abuse and its remedy among the villagers (domestic violence advocates, social workers, teachers, doctors, attorneys, clergy, family members and friends) that love and support domestic abuse survivors. The Conversations Series takes place on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 4pm – 6pm. Please join us for this dynamic series. Future Conversations are in the works! Stay Tuned!
