On one day in 2016, 1,197 domestic violence survivors found refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing in Indiana. 572 adults and children received non-residential assistance and services, including counseling, legal advocacy, and children’s support groups. For the eleventh consecutive year, on September 14, 2016, NNEDV conducted a one-day unduplicated count of adults and children seeking domestic violence services in the United States. This annual census documents the number of individuals who sought services in a single 24-hour period, as well as the types of services requested, the number of service requests that went unmet due to a lack of resources, and the issues and barriers that domestic violence programs face as they strive to provide services to victims of domestic violence. This report is instrumental in raising awareness about domestic violence and the incredible work that local domestic violence programs do every day. Click here for the Indiana report.
