Who We Are

The District of Columbia has two Domestic Violence Intake Centers.  The southeast satellite center is located at United Medical Center (formerly Greater Southeast Hospital) and the other one is located at D.C. Superior Court.  Both are run by a partnership of the Court, SAFE (Survivors and Advocates for Empowerment), the Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, the Legal Aid Society, and the U.S. Attorney's Office.  Their services are supplemented by other agencies that provide various services.  The centers serve as the primary entry point into the legal system for victims of domestic violence.  Victims may receive assistance with filing a petition for a civil protection order, obtaining a temporary protection order if they are in immediate danger, filing a child support case, pursuing a criminal case, requesting legal representation, and meeting their safety and social service needs during a period of crisis.


You can find information about the intake center at D.C. Superior Court here.
