Our History

The Salt Lake Domestic Violence Coalition (SLDVC) was established in 1993 in response to the need for public awareness about the crime of domestic violence, as well as to bring about a unity of social service providers who could meet the needs of those living in abusive relationships.

For over 20 years, SLDVC has united community leaders, treatment providers, victim advocates, police departments, victim shelters, attorneys, and other interested parties who are committed to the mission of preventing and eliminating domestic abuse. The effects of domestic violence reach beyond individual homes and families to our entire community. We recognize the importance of increased awareness and a coordinated effort in making strides against this pervasive social problem. Thank you for visiting our site; we hope you will learn more about what we are doing, how we are doing it, and how you can be part of it all.
