Domestic Violence Services of Southwestern Pennsylvania (DVSSP) has partnered with Western Pennsylvania-based, woman-owned technology development company OhanaLink Technologies™ to provide clients experiencing domestic violence with a secure communication channel as they receive help.
DVSSP recently began using OhanaLink Technologies’ OhanaLink Purple™ mobile solution—a first-in-the-market secure cloud-based delivery system. OhanaLink Purple™ gives DVSSP the tools to better coordinate and communicate with clients and their family members.
“DVSSP is continually looking for new and improved ways to serve our clients, and we are excited to offer the OhanaLink Purple mobile solution,” said DVSSP Chief Operating Officer Megan Dunlevy. “From providing a secure, private communication channel between our advocates and our clients to the wealth of resources available to them, OhanaLink Purple is a true game-changer for us.”
The COVID-19 pandemic spotlighted the challenges faced by those experiencing domestic violence, and shed light on the need for improved, safe communication tools between domestic violence agencies and their clients. As a result, in the fall of 2020, OhanaLink Technologies partnered with a coalition of domestic violence agencies to create OhanaLink Purple™ to address this overwhelming need.
OhanaLink Purple™ is delivered with proprietary Traceless Safety Features™ that can be used on smartphones or tablets to provide a safe, private mobile communication and support tool. The mobile system is free for DVSSP’s clients to use and gives them immediate access to the full functionality of the system.
