DVSC offers victims and their children a place where they can be safe, a respite from abuse, a place where they can heal, a place where they can put their lives back in order and plan for a brighter and violence-free future. We want victims of domestic violence to know they are not alone. At DVSC, there is always someone you can talk to. Our trained staff is available 24/7.

If you do not need safe shelter, DVSC offers counseling, support groups, advocacy, information and referrals.

DVSC is your path to safety and a shelter from abuse.

The need for services for victims of domestic violence is greater than ever, and the safety of all victims, children, and their families is on the line.
