Welcome to the HDVS Website

Humboldt Domestic Violence Services has been serving the North Coast for over 30 years. Our mission is to create an environment that supports individual safety and breaks the cycle of domestic violence. Founded on the basic principles of consenus-based empowerment and non-violence, we have continually expanded our services through the years to assist all those living with or escaping from abuse.

HDVS seeks to provide service and support to those experiencing domestic violence and to foster social and systemic change through services, education and advocacy.

HDVS helps hundreds of victims of domestic violence every year, in a wide variety of ways. Perhaps we can help you or someone you care about who suffers from abuse or the threat of abuse. All our services are free and confidential.

This site has been developed to provide users with an overview of the services HDVS provides, educational programs and material; and advocacy information.
