About DVSN

Partners

Our partners are key to the success of our programs. DVSN has close working relationships with police departments, courts, hospitals, and community organizations in our 13 partner communities. Strict safety, confidentiality, and privacy protocols are in place for sharing information between partners.

Police Departments

Our police partners refer clients who they assess may need support and resources to our Domestic Violence Victim Assistance Program (DVVAP). DVVAP Advocates then reach out to the clients to lend a confidential, non-judgmental ear and provide information on risk assessment, safety planning, and resources.
