Welcome to DVSAC of Greater Miami

The Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Council of Greater Miami (DVSAC) is the result of a community-based effort that began in 2001 in Miami-Dade County, Florida.  Today the DVSAC includes representatives from domestic violence and sexual assault service providers, government agencies, the criminal and civil justice system, the court and survivors.  

Membership in DVSAC is free and open to all individuals and organizations in Miami-Dade County.  Members attend regularly scheduled meetings and participate in committees created to achieve DVSAC goals.

The DVSAC is a program of Victim Response Inc., which operates The Lodge certified domestic violence center.
