Domestic Violence Resource Center
The mission of the Domestic Violence Resource Center is to educate, support and empower survivors and their children who are affected by intimate partner violence by offering counseling, advocacy, shelter services and community outreach.
Bottom Line for Portland
The Domestic Violence Resource Center (DVRC) provides free and confidential supportive services to survivors of domestic violence. Support services offered by DVRC include advocacy, counseling, emergency shelter, transitional housing, permanent housing, and a 24/7 crisis line. In 2020 alone, we responded to 4,621 crisis calls, created 2,094 safety plans, held 1,243 individual counseling sessions, and provided 3,370 safe nights in our shelters for survivors.
"When I first came to Monika's House (DVRC's emergency shelter), I didn't know what to expect. I never thought I would be connecting to others who didn't think twice about believing my experiences. My Advocates really wanted to help me step into my future. What mattered to me, mattered to them." -Survivor
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Domestic violence does not discriminate and affects millions of people each year. At DVRC, we remain committed to serving ALL survivors of domestic violence regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, economic status, or education level. DVRC works to break down service barriers by providing culturally specific and bilingual services to survivors.
