HISTORY

 City Commissioner Dan Saltzman and then County Commissioner Jeff Cogen took the lead to gain support to implement the findings of the DV One-Stop Feasibility Study completed in 2008.  The feasibility study gauged a very high community need for such a center. The Commissioners convened an Implementation Planning Task Force of local domestic violence service experts to guide the development of program plans, budgets, oversight structure, and operating agreements.
