When families and individuals meet the advocates at the Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita Valley, they are typically meeting them during one of the worst times in their lives.

The survivors that walk through the doors of the DVC have generally experienced emotional, sexual, and/or physical abuse.

Women are victims of more than 4 million physical assaults and rapes because of their partners, and men are victims of nearly 3 million physical assaults. With statistics like this, it is safe to say that domestic violence is a rampant, and ever increasing, issue that plagues the world around us, including Santa Clarita Valley.
