2017 marked DVCC's 40th year in our region. We are proud to have come from a grass roots concept to an agency that provides top notch violence intervention services. We now have a phenomenal facility that is unique because of the campus structure. We have evolved from an emergency shelter that could house 15 people to a space that can shelter 40 people.
A night of safety may mean a safe reprieve for a single night or it may mean a permanent escape from violence to a survivor. In 2017, DVCC provided over 3,800 nights of safety and 15, 200 meals to victims of violence and their children.
We rely on federal and state grants for 50% of our income, private grants for 25%, and private donations for the remaining 25%. We are so grateful for the support from so many of you in our region. Thank you.
