Domestic Violence Resource Network Organization Descriptions

The Domestic Violence Resource Network (DVRN) informs and strengthens domestic violence intervention and prevention efforts at the individual, community, and societal levels. DVRN member organizations are funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to work collaboratively to promote practices and strategies to improve our nation’s response to domestic violence and make safety and justice a priority. DVRN members ensure that victims of domestic violence, advocates, community programs, educators, legal assistance providers, law enforcement and court personnel, health care providers, policy makers, and government leaders at the local, state, tribal and federal levels have access to up-to-date information on best practices, policies, research and victim resources.

The DVRN consists of two national resource centers, four special issue resource centers, three culturally-specific resource centers, three new capacity centers, and the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
