Family Justice Center

Domestic Violence Coordinating Council 

 The Domestic Violence Coordinating Council (DVCC) was established by the Montgomery County Council in 2006 with the mission of reducing the incidence of domestic violence and creating a safe community for families to live free of abuse.

The seventeen member board is comprised of six public members and eleven agency representatives of the County and State government who coordinate efforts relating to domestic violence prevention and safety.  The DVCC meets bi-monthly on the second Thursday of the month from 5pm-7pm at the Montgomery County Family Justice Center (600 Jefferson Plaza, Suite 500, Rockville, MD 20852). Meetings are open for public observation.
