The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) and the University of Connecticut School of Social Work reports data that documents how well local domestic violence programs are addressing the needs of those reaching out to them for assistance. This substantial data collection effort involved 90 urban, rural and suburban community-based domestic violence programs and nearly 1,500 domestic violence survivors surveyed in 2010 about their experiences seeking and receiving non-residential domestic violence services.
This study complements the Meeting Survivors' Needs: A Multi-State Study of Domestic Violence Shelter Experiences (2008), a survey of survivors of domestic violence who were in shelter. The Shelter Study was also conducted by the University of Connecticut of Social Work, in collaboration with the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.
This collection complies information and resources from both studies, documenting our movement work to provide both residential and non-residential services to survivors of domestic violence and their loved ones.
