3,431 individuals impacted by domestic violence received services from DVCC last year.

437 individuals fleeing their abusers were sheltered in DVCC SafeHouses last year.

Each of these individuals is counted among the 56,178 victims who sought help from domestic violence agencies throughout Connecticut last year and the one billion women and girls throughout the world who are beaten or sexually assaulted.
