Each year in mid-September, the National Network to End Domestic Violence conducts a 24-hour survey of local domestic violence programs. This census, known as “Domestic Violence Counts” was performed on September 15, 2011 with 40 of Colorado’s domestic violence programs participating. In the survey, Colorado programs reported serving a total of 1,317 victims during that 24-hour period with 622 of them taking refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing. In addition to shelter, 695 adults and children received non-residential assistance and services in Colorado, including individual counseling, legal advocacy, and children’s support groups.
