The Georgia Commission on Family Violence (GCFV) works with communities and systems across the state to provide leadership in strengthening Georgia's families by ending family violence. GCFV is administratively attached to the Department of Community Supervision (DCS).
What is a coordinated community response to domestic violence?
A coordinated community response is an intervention strategy that employs an interagency approach to address domestic violence and protect victims. This means that every segment of the community - including judges, advocates, law enforcement, medical professionals, educators and concerned citizens - maintain responsibility for helping to end family violence. GCFV believes this is the best way to address domestic violence in our state.
