About the Network

The Vermont Network is the federally recognized domestic and sexual violence coalition in Vermont.  The Vermont Network is a statewide resource on domestic and sexual violence issues. Its staff  provide support for Network programs through training, technical assistance and capacity building; advocate for public policy that supports victims and holds offenders accountable; and seek to change societal attitudes and beliefs through community outreach and prevention.

The Vermont Network does not provide direct services for victims of domestic or sexual violence, but supports the fourteen Member Organizations that offer services like support and shelter throughout Vermont.  We can help victims to find the supports they need in their local communities.

Announcing the 9th Annual #DVcounts Census

For the ninth consecutive year, Vermont’s local domestic violence programs participated in the National Census of Domestic Violence Services on September 10, 2014.  Data from the census is available online at and in the report: Domestic Violence Counts: A 24-hour Census of Domestic Violence Shelters and Services.

In just one 24-hour period, Vermont’s local domestic violence programs helped 323 adults and children and answered 101 hotline calls.  One advocate reported that “during this Census Day, a survivor of domestic violence was able to come into shelter, obtain a temporary Relief from Abuse Order, gain assistance for clothing, needed personal items, phone access and food.  She arrived via transportation from a police officer and essentially the clothing on her back.”

The census was held on September 10, 2014, and collected information from almost 90 percent of the domestic violence programs from across the United States. Using data collected from these programs, the 2014 census report identifies needs that were met and unmet on September 10th and provides a snapshot of how budget cuts are affecting the staffing and resources of these organizations.
