dedicated to the empowerment of all the state's survivors of domestic and sexual violence1

National Statistics

By the most conservative estimate, each year 1 million women suffer nonfatal violence by an intimate.

88% of victims of domestic violence with fatalities had a documented history of physical abuse. In homes where partner abuse occurs, children are 1,500 times more likely to be abused.

An average of 28% of high school and college students experience dating violence at some point.

Domestic violence is statistically consistent across racial and ethnic boundaries.

Each year, between 50,000 and 100,000 Lesbian women and as many as 500,000 Gay men are battered.

The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.4 million adults are stalked annually in the United States.

Only about one-seventh of all domestic assaults come to the attention of the police.

Family violence costs $5 to $10 billion annually in medical expenses, police and court costs, shelters and foster care, sick leave, absenteeism, and non-productivity.
