Domestic violence cannot be solved by one person or one agency alone. Success is defined through a team approach that includes members from the community working together to address this epidemic. The DVCCRT creates a space that allows for open discussion of difficult cases, problem solving to better serve victims, discussion of more effective and accountable services for perpetrators, collaboration among agencies, creation of subcommittees to address particular concerns, and discussion of ideas on how to increase awareness of domestic violence and its devastating effects on our community.
We meet every fourth Thursday of each month from noon to 1:30 PM at the YWCA located at 25 Sheldon Blvd SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. This is also the location of our Noontime Educational Forums that typically occur in October, January, April, and May on the fourth Thursday of the month from noon to 1:30 PM. During the Noontime Educational Forums, experts discuss and present information on important domestic violence issues. All events and meetings are open to the public.
