The Lafayette Domestic Violence Council is seeking representatives that can provide services to domestic violence survivors.
In August of 2012 the LDVC was formed to act as a multi-disciplinary team that focuses on enhancing services to survivors of domestic violence in Lafayette Parish. The group uses evidence based on research to guide work with victims of domestic violence and perpetrators in the community.
"The focus of all goals, actions, and decisions of the LDVC will be increasing safety for survivors and their children." states Crystal Scrantz, co-chair of LDVC.
Currently the Council is made up of representatives from Lafayette Parish Clerk of Court, Acadiana Legal Services Corporation, Lafayette City Marshall's Office, Faith House, Family Violence Intervention Program, Hearts of Hope, Judge Duplantier's Family Preservation Court, Layette Parish Sheriff's Office, 15th JDC District Attorney, Probation and Parole, SLCC Police Department, The Extra Mile, ULL - Faculty members, ULL Police Department, and United Way of Acadiana.
