About The DV Evidence Project
Online Resource Center

The Domestic Violence Evidence Project (DVEP) Online Resource Center is designed to help state coalitions, local domestic violence programs, researchers, and other allied individuals and organizations better respond to the growing emphasis on identifying and integrating evidence-based practice into their work. To support the project, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) received funds from the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program, Family and Youth Services Bureau at the Department of Health and Human Services.

The DV Evidence Project online resource center is focused on how services impact survivors and their families, and combines research, evaluation, practice, and theory to inform critical thinking and enhance the field’s knowledge about effective services.

Technical assistance and training tools will continue to be developed to enhance the domestic violence field’s capacity to thoughtfully and responsibly review and/or translate evidence-based practices and practice-based evidence into their work.

We would like to note that all the resources and materials featured on DV Evidence Project’s online resource center reflect a highly collaborative process during which the NRCDV sought substantial input from many key informants and reviewers, including advocates, researchers, funders, and other local, state, and national experts.

The objectives of the DV Evidence Project Online Resource Center are:

To increase the capacity of domestic violence programs to comprehensively respond to the traumatic effects of abuse by increasing their awareness of evidence‐based practices

To increase domestic violence service providers’ access to information on effective interventions that are trauma‐informed and evidence‐based thus helping them better serve victims of domestic violence and their children who are experiencing the mental health and traumatic effects of intimate partner violence

Provide easy-to-use and relevant evaluation tools to help agencies examine how their services impact survivors.
