#DVCounts: Shout-Out to Our First Submissions!

September 14, 2020

On Thursday, September 10, the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) launched our 15th annual Domestic Violence Counts Day! During these 24 hours, we worked with thousands of advocates at local domestic violence programs in communities across the country to count the number of domestic violence services requested by adults and children—services both met, and unfortunately, unmet. The data and stories we tracked on Thursday will become our annual #DVCounts report, which helps inform local, state, and national policy decisions. (Check out last year’s report here.)

We want to give a special shout-out to the following programs, who submitted their data within 24 hours. We know you are working around the clock to support survivors, and we are so grateful that you took time out of your busy Thursday to share this critical information with us. (If you haven’t submitted your data yet, don’t worry! Submit here when you are ready.)
