Working for Change

The Domestic Violence Network’s Advocates Network is a network of individuals from social service organizations, law enforcement agencies, judiciaries, prosecutors’ offices, health care institutions, faith-based organizations, and other stakeholders that share a concern about domestic violence in Central Indiana and interact with victims, survivors and/or perpetrators of domestic violence.

DVN facilitates monthly Advocates Group meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.
