  • DHS Protocol for Approved Partner Abuse Intervention Programs
    The Department of Human Services funds and/or monitors Partner Abuse Intervention Programs across the state. These programs provide domestic violence perpetrator services such as assessment, individual and group education, and case coordination with referral sources. These services help perpetrators accept responsibility, modify abusive attitudes and beliefs, and give them tools to become and remain, healthy non-abusive partners and parents. All protocol approved programs must adhere to the standards established in Administrative Rule 89, Section 501.
    The following is a statewide list of programs that comply with the Illinois Protocol for Partner Abuse Intervention Programs. Also included is information on our funded domestic violence victim programs. The listing is organized by judicial districts. Consult the enclosed map to identify the judicial district which serves your county and correlates to the program service area. Sections of the list can be printed by highlighting the desired text, selecting print, selection.
