Titusville women’s services agency settles in at new office

The Titusville division of Women’s Services Office is in a new location at 123 N. Franklin St. in Titusville.

Debbie Carr, the coordinator, counselor and advocate in the office, said the agency’s previous location at 125 West Walnut St. was sold to new owners who wanted to use the space that housed the office.

A ribbon cutting at the new site was held earlier this month.

The office is open to men and women, and “everything we offer is free and 100% confidential,” Carr said.

Some things that the agency offers include counseling, legal and medical services, a secure shelter in Meadville and personal safety planning.

Carr, who has worked at the Women’s Services Office for about four years, said the office is involved with the Human Trafficking Task Force of Crawford County and has a prevention education program in place.

The Titusville office has been around for about six years, and Carr said the office in Meadville has been conducting these services since the 1970s.
