Division of Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention and Services
In partnership with sexual and domestic violence service providers and other stakeholders, we work to eliminate sexual and domestic violence (SDV) and support the health of those impacted by such violence. We challenge the social conditions that contribute to SDV and promote respect in relationships of every kind.
All sexual and domestic violence services funded by DPH are high quality, culturally relevant, trauma-informed, evidence-driven, and centered on the needs, wellbeing, resilience, and leadership of survivors and their children. All services must be meaningfully accessible to the diverse populations across the Commonwealth, and grounded in social justice.
