Local domestic violence shelters measured by 24-hour census

A 24-hour census by the National Network to End Domestic Violence offers a unique glimpse into local domestic violence shelters.

A press release from the Beaman Home says 1,762 local domestic violence programs participated in the national census. The data revealed almost 73,000 adults and children received help and support from domestic violence programs on the day of the census and over 20,000 calls for help were answered by local, state, and national hotline staff and volunteers.

The Beaman Home says due to a lack of resources, census data shows almost 12,000 requests for service could not be met on Census Day.
