​It takes a village.

A community can be defined in many ways. For us at the Domestic Violence Resource Center, our community is a place where we have a strong sense of fellowship, shared values and common interests.

As part of our community, you and your staff can help a person take the necessary next steps on their journey to safety by directing them to DVRC.

Please consider being part of this developing program; be included in the network of businesses who can change the way we assist victims of domestic violence.

Virtual training for you and your staff that includes:

  • Meeting with DVRC members
  • Learning the signs of someone who may be asking for help, understanding their questions without being invasive
  • Understanding confidentiality and discretion
  • Boundaries

At your place of business:

  • Agreement to place a DVRC logo on your door and/or website
  • We will provide you with reference materials and brochures

  • You’ll be listed on our website as a partner, as well as in our social media and other news publications

Please feel free to call Anne to discuss this further and answer questions.

Here’s Why

Many abuse victims don’t talk about being abused because they don’t have anybody who would listen. Either they are lonely and isolated, or they are dependent on their abusers.

Isolation, Betrayal, and Lack of Support. Either they are lonely and isolated, or they are dependent on their abusers.

Many abuse victims don’t talk about being abused because they don’t have anybody who would listen. Either they are lonely and isolated, or they are dependent on their abusers.

Men, for instance, may not be taken seriously when they try to talk about being abused, even by the police. It is not commonly accepted in our society that women can be abusers.

“It seemed miraculous that after years of assuming no one would believe me, they immediately believed me.”
