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
DVRC provides support and empowerment to survivors of domestic violence (free of charge). In 2017 alone, DVRC provided more than 2,500 survivors with protective order advocacy, responded to 3,400 crisis calls, and held 1,300 support sessions for women and men.
“DVRC saved my life. I use the things I learned in group and individual counseling daily. I didn’t always feel like a survivor, but now I do. I am stronger than I know and feel like I can finally break the cycle. It stops here with me.”
