Urgent Need for Increased Funding for Domestic Violence Service Providers
The National Network to End Domestic Violence today released a new research report. Domestic Violence Counts 2013: A 24-hour Census of Domestic Violence Shelters and Services, looks at a random day - Sept. 17, 2013 from midnight to midnight - and at 1,649 domestic violence programs throughout the United States.
In Pennsylvania, 2,424 victims received services in that 24-hour period, but 364 could not be helped because local programs in the commonwealth lacked sufficient resources.
National Survey Findings Highlight Need for Prevention
Prevention of interpersonal violence (IPV) must begin at an early age before unhealthy relationship patterns are established. The National 2010 study shows that nearly 70 percent of female victims and nearly 54 percent of male victims experienced IPV before age 25.
