Legal Services

Who do we serve? 

All victims and survivors of intimate partner abuse, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, age, disability or otherwise.  At DVP, we believe that being free of domestic violence is a human right and as such, we aim to assist all individuals. 

What we do

The Domestic Violence Project provides culturally-sensitive and linguistically appropriate services to survivors and those impacted by intimate partner abuse.  A key aspect of our holistic approach is that services are trauma-informed allowing staff to develop working alliances with clients while their individual needs are met through counseling, referral and linkage, escorts, and advocacy. This fosters skill building and how victims navigate and overcome difficulties while allowing staff to prioritize services in ways that reflect client preferences while also ensuring their safety. Currently, our services include:
