The 2015 National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) Census of Domestic Violence Services began today at 8 am. This is a 24 hour census that collects data from all ICADV member domestic violence shelters in the state. It is the census used to develop the Domestic Violence Counts Census Report. This is the only national report that outlines the amazing work of advocates and points to the need for more resources and funding. This report is an outstanding advocacy tool used at the Federal, State and local level. Indiana has had 100% census participation from programs for the last three years and we’re working to meet that goal again.
