Our Commitment to Confidentiality
We are a Trauma Informed Agency whose main focus is to help victims of domestic violence break the cycle of abuse in their lives.
Our goal is to help victims break the cycle of violence and heal in order to have healthy relationships in the future.
DVRC, Inc. was formed in 1996 to provide advocates, alongside the Albuquerque Police Department, at domestic violence scenes. In 2007, we joined the Family Advocacy Center to provide assistance to domestic violence survivors leaving abusive relationships and grew to include Trauma-Informed Counseling & Case Management Services.
We work with multiple community organizations to help provide resources, legal help and financial resources needed to get a victim to safety and work with them to rebuild their lives after domestic violence.
