DVS is a wonderful place to work! Hear from one of our staff members:

“I want to thank the agency for having me be a part of the team for the past 3 years. It has truly been an honor working with such a wonderful group. I have learned so much from each and every person here. I have learned many skills as well as gained an immense amount of confidence that I will take in all my future endeavors. I am eternally grateful to have received the opportunities and support I was given throughout my time here.”

Domestic Violence Solutions (DVS) recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) by calling upon the community to unite in solidarity with survivors. Throughout October, DVS will be organizing a series of community events and encourages all to take part in raising awareness about domestic violence and the ways we can all contribute towards its prevention.
