The Domestic Violence Action Center (DVAC) provides immediate service and support to individuals who are in crisis as a result of intimate partner violence. Crisis support services are free of charge and our Helpline operates Monday through Friday from 8:30am until 4:30pm. You can expect to talk to a trained person about your situation. You will be provided some initial counseling and options, and if appropriate, refer you to other agencies for your specific situation. In addition we offer crisis support to clients at Family Court while they go through the Restraining Order process and during their hearing, and at Criminal Court for Complaining Witnesses in Abuse and Restraining Order Violation cases.
