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. 

How can I get involved with the work to end domestic violence in my local community?

GCFV supports multidisciplinary Family Violence Task Forces in judicial circuits across the state. Please visit our website for a complete list, contact information and upcoming meetings.
