The abuse continues and agencies like DVC continue to build comprehensive, coordinated programs and services to protect women and children in shelters and in the community.
The Domestic Violence Center (DVC) is a nonprofit organization, and the only organization in Cuyahoga County devoted totally to the issue of Domestic Violence. Our agency offers emergency shelter, justice system advocacy, counseling, community education and training programs for youth and adults, a supervised visitation program, specialized programming for Latina victims, community support groups and a 24 hour hotline.
DVC was formed in July 2001 from the merging of The Center for Prevention of Domestic Violence and Templum. The Domestic Violence Center draws from the history of two organizations with a combined fifty years of experience in working with domestic violence victims, their children and abusive individuals.
