Young people are affected by domestic violence and dating violence as both victims and witnesses.  One-half to two-thirds of residents in domestic violence shelters are children.  In fact, on one day in 2010, 20,406 children were living in domestic violence shelters or transitional housing facilities. Another 6,592 sought services at non-residential programs.

Legislative Action

The Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) is the primary federal funding source for domestic violence shelters and programs.  FVPSA-funded shelters offer safety and support to children and their non-abusive parent.  Additionally, a portion of funding over $130 million is dedicated to providing targeted services to children who witness domestic violence.  

The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) includes grant programs designed to support youth victims and stop violence before it has begun through targeted services to break the cycle of violence.

Congress must hear from you about the importance of VAWA and FVPSA funding for children and youth services nationwide.
