Domestic Violence Crisis Center
Since 1980, the Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC) has provided counseling and advocacy services for victims of domestic violence and their children. DVCC is the only state-certified agency recognized by the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) serving the communities of Norwalk, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Westport, Weston and Wilton.
DVCC’s role is to help those experiencing any level of domestic violence and assist them in building a safer environment for the well-being of themselves and their families. Our services include housing and financial advocacy, legal advocacy, trauma-informed individual and group counseling, and emergency safe housing. All victim services are free and confidential, and all services offered are multicultural/multilingual.
DVCC’s mission is to prevent and eliminate domestic violence by educating our communities and supporting individuals in building safer lives.
We envision a world free of domestic violence. We believe that safety is a fundamental right. We strive to create a culturally inclusive environment where all individuals have access to life-saving services and support regardless of background or identity.
