Message from the Director
On behalf of the board of directors, I am pleased to announce that Lois Keller, MS, LPC, has joined CVC as the new Executive Director. Lois brings a wealth of knowledge from her many years of experience, most recently as Associate Director for the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance.
In her position as Associate Director, Lois facilitated multi-disciplinary team collaboration, while overseeing all departments, including Victim Services, Forensic Services, and Clinical Counseling Services. She was also responsible for developing and implementing the trauma treatment program, which provides clinical mental health services to survivors of abuse. Prior to her experience with Philadelphia Children’s Alliance, Lois worked at Women Organized Against Rape, providing counseling to women, men, and children who were survivors of sexual violence.
Lois received her M.S. in Counseling Psychology from Holy Family University. Much of her early clinical experience involved providing crisis and trauma counseling to overseas humanitarian workers. She is very passionate about victim advocacy, program development, and providing culturally competent care to trauma survivors.
The board of directors is confident that CVC will be in excellent hands, poised to continue assisting and advocating for victims and survivors in the Lehigh Valley.
Please join us in welcoming Lois to Crime Victim’s Council and wishing her success in her new role!
Scott R. Snyder
President, Board of Directors
