We are a group of abuse survivors. In 1978, we created the Family Violence Law Center (FVLC) to help others obtain restraining orders and find emergency shelter. We have expanded our efforts to educate the community, initiate prevention programs and continue to empower domestic violence survivors.

37 years laters we are still going strong.
