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 nineteen member board is comprised of six public members, two representatives from non-governmental or non-profit domestic violence service or advocacy organizations 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. During the COVID-19 health crisis, meetings are being held virtually. Meetings are open for public observation.
