Domestic violence/intimate partner violence (DV/IPV) is a pervasive problem that threatens the physical, psychological, emotional, and material safety of individuals and families in our community. The Chattanooga Hamilton County Family Justice Center (FJC) has seen a 25% increase in survivors seeking safety and support last year. Local service providers/partners also indicate significant increases in the number of survivors they are serving as well.
As part of a coordinated community response, the Chattanooga Hamilton County Family Justice Center is reaching out to social service providers, domestic violence/intimate partner violence programs, law enforcement, educational professionals, victim advocates, therapists, justice-related agencies, faith-based organizations, survivors, community groups and individuals for your input into a Domestic Violence Needs Assessment for our community. It should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
The purpose of the assessment is to learn from those who receive and provide services about which populations are most in need, what resources are needed, and how we can improve support. Please share this survey link in your networks.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your experience, knowledge, and insight are foundational to a strong coordinated community response.
The FJC serves residents of Hamilton County and the City of Chattanooga by co-locating services in a trauma-informed environment to:
