Changing the Trajectory of Survivors’ Lives
DCVLP, with 225 volunteer attorneys in 2015, provides pro bono legal assistance and support services to domestic violence victims and at-risk children in Washington, DC.
In 2015, our volunteers helped 600 of the most vulnerable people in our community achieve safety and stability by providing representation in civil protection order and family law cases, and serving as advocates for children at risk of serious harm. Throughout the legal process, our Client Advocate and Case Manager, a licensed clinical social worker, provides essential support and social services to our clients to ensure the best long-term outcome.
With our community partners, we provide holistic services at our Domestic Violence Resource Clinic, changing the trajectory of survivors’ lives, and connecting them with tools for a fresh start.
