The Montgomery County domestic violence agency, known as Laurel House, is doing very well with a thrift shop it opened earlier this year in the North Penn Area.
It’s in the Pennwood Plaza on North Broad Street in Hatfield Township. Development and Community Relations Director Tina Reynolds says the agency started more than 32 years ago as an emergency shelter for women who had to escape from an abusive relationship, and that is still part of Laurel House, but it has become much more.
“We also have children’s programs, as well as transitional housing. We also do crisis intervention with the police and the ERs”
Reynolds says proceeds from sales at the store, known as “Laurel’s Loft,” benefit Laurel House programs. She appeared Monday on the WNPV talk program “Buxmont Live.”
