Safety and Dignity ... A Promise We Must Keep
The Domestic Violence Intervention Program
In today’s society, domestic violence is widely known to be one of the greatest physical dangers to women. Women, men and children are murdered each year and the risk of child abuse is much greater in households where domestic violence occurs. Responding to domestic violence is critical and requires a community wide effort. Support for victims of domestic violence and their loved ones is available in Johnson, Iowa, Cedar and Washington Counties through the Domestic Violence Intervention Program. The Domestic Violence Intervention Program (DVIP) began in 1977, providing direct service support to more than 28,000 women, men and children during the past two decades. In one year DVIP will answer approximately 18,000 crisis/phone calls and provide more than 8000 nights of safe shelter to approximately 400 women and children.
The DVIP is founded on the belief that everyone has the right to live free of fear and harm. The Clients, Board of Directors, Volunteers and Staff recently reviewed and updated our mission.
The Mission of the Domestic Violence Intervention Program is to provide comprehensive support and advocacy services to victim/survivors, focusing on immediate and long-term safety, empowerment, dignity, and hope. In collaboration with the community, we strive to end domestic abuse through education, accountability, and social justice.
Throughout the year, our communities come together to support victims of domestic violence by learning more about this crime and donating their time and resources to help end suffering. We hope you will join us by opening a discussion about domestic violence with your group (we’d be happy to come and bring information!). Or consider sharing your most valuable resource—your time and compassion! Becoming a volunteer at DVIP can mean hope and support for victims who deserve so much.
