DVSN, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, provides assistance to individuals and families in our local communities whose lives behind closed doors are seriously affected by abusive, controlling relationships. Between 2008 and 2012, domestic violence calls to police in DVSN’s eleven suburban partner towns increased 68 % to nearly 12 cases per week. In the same period, victims helped by DVSN rose more than 80% to 52 per month.
