The Heart of Who We Are
About the Center
Davie Center for Violence Prevention (DCVP) provides crisis intervention, support, emergency shelter coordination and appropriate referrals through the judicial process and other victim assistance programs. Although a county agency, DCVP is primarily grant funded.
DCVP provides information about rape, sexual assault, and domestic violence laws, victims’ rights and compensation. Personal advocacy for court, hospital, magistrate’s office, and clerk’s office is provided by staff and trained volunteers. Domestic violence and sexual assault support groups are held weekly and facilitated by trained personnel. Referrals are made to law enforcement agencies, counseling services, and agencies that provide shelter, food, clothing, etc., both in Davie and adjacent counties.
