National DV Count

The National Network to End Domestic Violence released the results of a national census, having domestic violence programs around the country report the number of people seeking assistance during one 24-hour period in November 2006. Over 1000 programs responded (60% of the programs identified). In that one day, over 47,000 adults and children were served, almost a third in emergency shelters. Over half received non-residential services, such as counseling, legal advocacy, and children's support groups. Executive Summary; full report.
