DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESPONSE TEAM

Our Mission Statement

The mission is to educate the community on the cycle of violence and provide the tools and resources to break that cycle, and create peace in the family.

Domestic Violence Response Program (DVRT)

The DVRT is a twenty-four hour a day, seven-day a week program created to assist victims of domestic abuse.  Team members will be called upon by the local Police to assist victims at the police station by providing them with support and information.  The goal of the program is to provide victims with the knowledge to make informed decisions based upon the options available to them.
