The National Domestic Violence Hotline Visit disclaimer page (The Hotline) has answered over 5.5 million phone calls, online chats, and text messages from people affected by domestic violence and dating abuse. The Hotline operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is available in over 170 languages, including a website in English and Spanish, and provides an immediate response to survivors of abuse, their families, friends, and concerned others. The Hotline directly connects contactors to a seamless referral system of over 5,000 local, community-based programs in response to callers’ needs. StrongHearts Native Helpline Visit disclaimer page , a crisis helpline providing culturally appropriate peer support, information, referrals, and safety planning for Native American survivors of domestic violence receives funding through The Hotline.

This state-based resource center, led by the Alaska Native Women’s Resource Center, focuses on the intervention and prevention of family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence by offering statewide information, training and technical assistance specially designed to reduce tribal disparities within Alaska Native (AN) communities and villages. The purpose of this project is to enhance the capacity of AN Tribes and tribal organizations to respond to family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence in a culturally sensitive and relevant, and effective manner.

These SSAPC demonstration projects will focus on expanding their capacity (as family violence, domestic violence, and dating violence coalitions; local programs; tribal communities; and community-based programs) to prevent future domestic violence by addressing, in a developmentally appropriate manner, the needs of children exposed to family violence, domestic violence, or dating violence.

The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) provides the primary federal funding stream dedicated to the support of emergency shelter and supportive services for victims of domestic violence and their dependents.

FVPSA funding supports the infrastructure and network of national training and technical assistance to help states, communities, and tribes address complex social, legal, medical, and housing needs for victims of domestic violence and their children.
