Domestic violence is a pervasive social problem that impacts thousands of women, men and children each year in Monroe County. Unlike some social problems, domestic violence impacts people in our community regardless of their zip code, income level, race, religion or level of education. Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence.

The Rochester/Monroe County Domestic Violence Consortium is a volunteer run organization comprised of over 25 member organizations that span the social systems and disciplines required to create a coordinated community response to domestic violence. Working together, these organizations seek to protect domestic violence victims while holding offenders accountable.
