Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Program BlogThe CDHS Domestic Violence Program (DVP) is the sole government entity dedicated entirely to funding and sustaining community-based domestic violence programs across the state.  DVP oversees approximately $3 million annually in funding designated to intervene, prevent and respond to domestic violence.  DVP is the lead authority within CDHS and state government for issues pertaining to domestic violence.

The mission of DVP is to partner with communities in the prevention of domestic violence while promoting the safety and well-being of survivors through good stewardship of funding resources.  The vision of DVP is to promote and sustain a culture free of domestic violence for all Coloradans.

DVP is not a direct service organization. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence and needs help, use the Domestic Violence Program Map below to find a program near you.
