Domestic violence does not discriminate – people from any geographic location, ethnicity, race, age group, socioeconomic status, education level, country of origin, sexual orientation, or gender can experience abuse.
Nearly 13 million people are physically abused, raped, or stalked by an intimate partner every year in the United States.
In Colorado, the Domestic Violence programs respond to nearly 70,000 calls for assistance each year, and serve more than 25,000 survivors of domestic violence and their dependents annually.
Coloradans can call 1-800-799-7233 for domestic violence advice and counsel. Call-takers can all make referrals for local victim services and shelter.
