Mission Statement

Domestic Violence Advocacy Council (DVAC) advocates to solve problems, increase public awareness and support educational efforts for victims of domestic violence.


* To provide inter-system advocacy and promote community advocacy.

* To act as a coordinating body, with members agreeing to try to benefit the victim by resolving systemic problems.

* To alert interested community parties, including local units of government, to the needs of domestic violence-related services or responses to violence, which are beyond the scope or means of the Advocacy Council.  The Council is composed of representatives from various agencies.
