The Eastern Panhandle Empowerment Center (EPEC) is a non-profit, community-based agency that was founded in 1977 by a group of community volunteers who wanted to help women who were being abused by their partners. Originally called the Shenandoah Women’s Center, they formed the area’s first crisis hotline for domestic abuse. Since then, the re-named Eastern Panhandle Empowerment Center has grown into a comprehensive resource and counseling center offering service to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and human trafficking.

SPC has been connected with EPEC since the late 1980’s. We regularly provide both monetary and material donations, have hosted workdays, provided volunteers for their programs, and highlighted their work through special offerings and informational programs. Several SPC members have been employees of the agency over the years and retired pastor Randall Tremba served on their Board of Directors. They are financially supported through our Mission budget.
