We provide the following services:

    • Community Advocacy: The Domestic Violence Resource Center Community Advocacy Program provides advocacy to survivors of domestic violence residing in Washington County, Oregon. The program provides a wide range of free and confidential services to clients in English, Spanish, Hindi, and Farsi.
    • Counseling Services: The Domestic Violence Resource Center offers counseling services at no cost to adult and child survivors of domestic violence. Our approach to counseling is client-centered and flexible. All counseling services are offered in English and Spanish. At this time, DVRC does not offer couples counseling, batterers/abuser intervention groups or psychological assessments.
    • Confidential Shelter: Monika’s House is a 24-bed facility (6 family units and 3 single-person units) providing safe and confidential emergency shelter for more than 200 adults, children, and their pets fleeing imminent physical danger from family violence each year.
    • Transitional Housing: The Mary Mac House provides a continuity of services from emergency shelter to independent permanent housing and is focused on the continued progress of survivors to work toward self-sufficiency using leased housing as a platform for rapid transition from shelter to permanent housing. Mary Mac has the capacity to serve 5 households (a total of 10 beds).
    • 24-Hour Crisis Line: The Crisis Line provides support, intervention, and resources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    • Community Education: DVRC provides domestic violence related informational seminars and training to organizations and agencies throughout the surrounding community.
    • Safety Planning: An essential part of the work we do with clients experiencing domestic violence is safety planning. Safety planning is just what it sounds like: creating a plan to keep yourself and any children and/or pets safe while living in an environment of domestic violence and abuse, preparing to leave, leaving, and after leaving an abuser. A survivor’s safety and well-being is most at risk during episodes of violence and when attempting to leave an abuser, so it’s especially important to prepare ahead of time to be as protected as possible. Below are some common aspects of safety planning in a DV situation, as well as downloadable versions of our personalized safety planning packet, in both English and Spanish.
