Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Inc.

Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Inc. (DVCC) was incorporated under the State of North Dakota on October 18, 1977. DVCC has two women's support groups. The first support group for battered women began in May of 1978. A second group was started in the Spring of 1991 to accommodate the increase in women seeking help. The Women's group meets Tuesday mornings and Thursday evenings.

In 1981, DVCC obtained a lease from the city of Minot for a house to be used as an emergency shelter and office space. The safe home (shelter) had accommodations for up to 16 residents. Residents may stay up to 30 days in the safe home. Local motels offer rooms for back-up shelter space when the safe home is full. DVCC is the only agency which provides emergency shelter in a 100 mile radius of Minot for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. In September of 1992, DVCC moved its office to its current location. This provided for easier access by the general public and enabled better consistency for clients and an overall increase of quality of services.

A Children's Support Group started in 1990. This group provided education and awareness for children who have experienced domestic violence in their homes. Children's Group meets three times a year for 10 week sessions. In May of 1993, a Children's Advocate was hired. The Children's Advocate works with the children at the shelter and transitional housing units, coordinates children's group, and presents educational programs at local schools on the prevention of domestic violence.

Mission:

  • To provide a full range of services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
  • To reduce domestic violence by educating the public about its effects.
