The DVCC Has a New Website

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The Domestic Violence Crisis Center recently launched an exciting new website that boasts a much greater wealth of information, colorful photographs and interactive features. The site’s multi-purpose objectives are to provide victims with helpful information and encourage them to take advantage of our services; to give everyone who visits the site a better understanding of the breadth of our service and advocacy work; and to inspire all to partner with us in our commitment to promote the right of individuals to be safe in their personal relationships.

 

DVCCCT.org provides comprehensive information on our agency’s services, advocacy projects, PeaceWorks education program, community engagement and DVCC360. DVCC360 is our latest undertaking, encompassing Research, Advocacy, Policy and Partnerships (RAPP), through which we advocate for and work toward systems change that will benefit victims of intimate partner violence. DVCC news stories offer further updates on our activities, the calendar shows where we are and what we are doing on any given day and, in response to the multi-national nature of our work, the website may be instantly translated into over 50 different languages via the Google translation service.

 

“The DVCC is actively advocating for the rights of victims of intimate partner violence 24 hours a day, as well as providing awareness and education about domestic violence throughout our communities. Not only are we in the SafeHouses, courthouses and our counseling offices, we are also in hospitals, community health centers, community action centers, housing authorities, police departments, civic organizations, state and local legislative offices and, of course, through PeaceWorks, in our schools,” said DVCC Executive Director Rachelle Kucera Mehra. “The new DVCCCT.org brings that information to the forefront and enables us to provide faster updates, relevant news stories and valuable tools and resources to the community and to our clients.”

 

The DVCC invites members of the media to use our new website both as a source of information and as a source for story ideas.
