The Harris County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council works systemically to create community collaborations that seek to: increase safety to victims of domestic violence, hold perpetrators of domestic violence accountable for their crime, and create community collaborations that maximize resources and work to prevent and end domestic violence.
WHAT WE DO
The Harris County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council works to increase community collaboration in order to maximize resources to reduce and prevent domestic violence in Harris County. Activities include providing public education and outreach, facilitating an adult violent death review team that reviews violent deaths to identify solutions for future prevention, conducting a community safety assessment, and leading local efforts to expand screening for domestic violence in pediatric and health care systems. The Council meets monthly to strengthen coordination and collaboration among service providers. The board members are leaders within the agencies who serve victims of domestic violence. Members include local law enforcement, domestic violence programs, battering intervention and prevention services, legal services, Harris County District Attorney’s office, children’s services, immigration services, and health care professionals. The Council was formed to formalize working relationships to secure the best services possible for victims.
The work of HCDVCC is made possible through the generous funding of the Houston Endowment, the Alice Kleberg Reynolds Foundation, and The Simmons Foundation. We thank each of these funders for their ongoing support.
