Domestic Violence also known as family violence and intimate partner violence can happen to anyone. However how to best support safety for the individual victim of violence may be very different depending on their culture, religion, race, nationality, gender, sexual preference, abilities and or age. The Utah Domestic Violence Council relies on our partnerships with diverse groups and communities of people to strengthen our understanding of how to best support victims of violence.
We believe that all people have the right to be safe in their own home and to be free of violence and other forms of abuse.
Utah Domestic Violence Council offers training throughout Utah concerning the basics of domestic violence and rights of victims. UDVC is recognized as the voice of expertise in Utah concerning Domestic Violence. UDVC and the UDVC staff recognize that there are other experts that can assist us in our understanding and response to domestic violence in Utah.

We believe that by taking the time to understand and honor these differences, while working together empowers us to create a safe and flourishing Utah for all families.
