The Domestic Violence Intervention Center (DVIC), formerly East Alabama Taskforce for Battered Women’s, was incorporated as a 501 (3)c non-profit agency in 1980 with its shelter accepting its first client in 1981. Serving five counties (Chambers, Lee, Macon, Randolph and Tallapoosa Counties), DVIC provides a 24-hour crisis line, a confidential emergency shelter, case management, legal advocacy, child advocacy, counseling, referrals to community agencies, support groups, and transportation.
The Domestic Violence Intervention Center is the only organization of its kind in a five-county service area and has gained the respect of victims, the public and law enforcement and the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence for providing quality care to survivors of domestic violence.
The overall mission of DVIC is to eliminate violence in the lives of men, women and children in our five-county area. We are dedicated to providing direct services to domestic violence survivors so that they will gain the self-confidence to achieve self-sufficiency which makes them less likely to return to their abuser.
