Our History

The Salt lake Domestic Violence Coalition (SLDVC) was established in 1992 in response to the need for public awareness for the issue of domestic violence. As well as bring about a unity of social service organizations who could meet the needs of those living in abusive relationships, and those trying to leave.

For over over 20 years, SLDVC has united community leaders, treatment providers, victim advocates, police officers, shelters, attorney’s and more who are committed to the mission of preventing and eliminating domestic violence. The effects of domestic violence reach beyond the individual homes and families, it effects entire communities. We have recognized the importance of increasing awareness and coordinated effort in making strides against this pervasive social problem.
