Domestic Violence Counts 2010: A 24-hour census of domestic violence shelters and services

General Material
Published Date
January, 2011

On September 15, 2010, 91 percent of identified domestic violence programs in the United States participated in the 2010 National Census of Domestic Violence Services. This annual census documents the number of individuals who sought services in a single 24-hour period, as well as the types of services requested, the number of service requests that went unmet due to a lack of resources, and the issues and barriers that domestic violence programs face as they strive to provide services to victims of domestic violence. This report is instrumental in raising awareness about domestic violence and the incredible work that local domestic violence programs do every day.

Findings include:

70,648 Victims Served in One Day
23,522 Hotline Calls Answered
30,134 Educated in Prevention and Education Trainings
9,541 Unmet Requests for Services
2,007 Jobs Lost
82% of Programs Reported Higher Demand for Services
