Published: August 6, 2015
Family Violence Coordinating Councils, at both state and local/circuit levels, establish a forum to improve the institutional, professional, and community response to family violence, including intimate partner abuse, child abuse, abuse against people with disabilities, and elder abuse. The councils engage in education and prevention as well as coordination of intervention and services for victims and perpetrators. They work to improve the administration of justice when addressing family violence.
