What can the NHRC provide?

group of drs

The National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence provides personalized, technical assistance to domestic and sexual violence advocates and to health care practitioners, administrators and systems, students, policy makers, and others at all levels as they improve health care’s response to domestic violence. The Center is funded by a grant from the Family Violence Prevention & Services Program, Family & Youth Services Bureau, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and is a member of the Domestic Violence Resource Network (DVRN).

To help address the health care system’s response to domestic violence in your community, the HRC provides:

  • Free training tools
  • Free patient and provider tools
  • Promising practice resources
  • Technical assistance
  • Webinars for coalitions and DV/SA programs
  • In person training or calls

We also invite advocates to get involved with HRC work groups and to partner with us on the development of policy briefs and clinical tools.  Please contact us at health@futureswithoutviolence.org if you would like to be more involved in working groups or partnering on policy briefs.

Please note: We do not provide crisis services. If you are in an abusive relationship and need assistance, please call the toll-free National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). If you are in immediate danger, please call 911.

Technical assistance includes the ability to contact Center staff by email, phone and fax to help facilitate the work being conducted in the area of health care’s response to domestic violence. If you have a question, or would like to talk to a staff member, please contact us and provide a detailed description.
