Domestic Violence Intake Center

The Domestic Violence Intake Center (DVIC) is a collaborative project of governmental and non-governmental agencies in order to provide coordinated services to survivors of domestic violence in the District of Columbia. These agencies are the United States Attorney’s Office (USAO), the Office of the Attorney Generals Office (OAG), the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), Crime Victims Compensation Program (CVCP), Legal Aid Society, Ramona’s Way, Center for Child Protection/Victim Service Center, Survivors and Advocates for Empowerment (SAFE) (Victim Advocacy), and the DC Superior Court Clerk’s Office.

The DVIC provides a single access point for victims of domestic violence by conducting intake evaluations, providing counseling, safety planning, assisting victims in drafting pleadings and other documents necessary for acquisition of protective orders and free legal representation.
