Raising awareness about issues related to domestic & dating violence

About Family Violence Prevention Center March 15, 2010

The Family Violence Prevention Center (FVPC) is the domestic violence agency serving Orange County, North Carolina. FVPC opened in 2001 in response to Orange County’s need for a county specific agency to work with victims of domestic violence, their friends and families. Our mission is to prevent and end domestic violence through direct services and community education.

We offer services to adults and children who are experiencing emotional, physical or sexual abuse in their personal relationships. We work with people on an individual basis to determine what their options may be. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our services are free, confidential and available in English and Spanish. Services are provided to people of all races, classes, religions, ethnic groups, sexual orientations and gender identities.

We strongly believe that in addition to being a personal issue, domestic violence is a community problem that requires a strong and concerted community response. We invite the community to join us—as hotline advocates, court liaisons, or financial supporters. Our office is only a phone call away: 919-929-3872. Our hotline is available 24 hours a day at 919-926-7122 or 866-929-7122.

The title of our blog “One in Four” comes from the Center for Disease Control statistic that nearly 1 in4 women will experience domestic violence  over the course of their lifetime.

  1. I do agree with all of the concepts you’ve introduced to your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
