Domestic Violence Awareness Month

In October of each year Domestic Violence Center of Chester County celebrates Domestic Violence Awareness Month signified by a purple ribbon. A symbol of hope and healing, purple is the color of Domestic Violence Awareness. The Domestic Violence Center of Chester County continues its vision to “Paint The Town Purple” every October by tying purple ribbons to lamp posts throughout Chester County communities.

First observed in October 1981 as a national “Day of Unity,” Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) is held each October as a way to unite advocates across the nation in their efforts to end domestic violence. Communities and advocacy organizations across the country  connect with the public and one another throughout the month to raise awareness about the signs of abuse and ways to stop it, and to uplift survivor stories and provide additional resources to leaders and policymakers. Each October the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County engages in several, countywide, grassroots outreach efforts to increase awareness.

The mission of the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County is to reduce, remedy, and prevent domestic violence in Chester County.



Domestic Violence is defined as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate partner.

Domestic violence can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten, terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure, or wound someone.


If you are a victim in need of services, call our 24/7 hotline at 888-711-6270 to speak with an advocate.

We have seen an increase in reports of payment scams in your area. These scammers are contacting PECO customers and falsely claiming their electric or gas service will be disconnected unless payment is made immediately. These scammers use tactics such as “spoofing” to manipulate the Caller ID phone number displayed on your phone so that it appears to be a PECO phone number.
PECO will never demand immediate payment, nor will we ever require one specific form of payment, such as a prepaid card or digital currency. Do not pay on-site for services, PECO employees will never ask for or demand cash payments or personal banking information in-person. You should never provide anyone access to your home who claims to be from PECO, or a contractor working for PECO, unless the person has proper identification.
For more information on payment scams and what you can do to keep your information safe, visit peco.com/scams. If you are ever suspicious of a caller claiming to be from PECO, hang up and call us directly at 1-800-494-4000.
