Domestic Violence Resource Center


The mission of the Domestic Violence Resource Center is to support and empower survivors and their children who are affected by domestic violence.

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, community education/training, and a 24/7 crisis line. In 2021 alone, we responded to 6,239 crisis calls, created 1,700 safety plans, held 1,482 individual counseling sessions, and provided 3,335 safe nights in our shelters for survivors. 


“My advocate helped me gain confidence and never judged me or my situation. She told me not to give up and helped me keep going, even when I felt like my own worst enemy. I only stayed at Monika's House (DVRC's emergency shelter) for two months, but what I gained will stay with me for a lifetime.” -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.
