Multnomah County FVCC

The Family Violence Coordinating Council (FVCC) is a multi-agency, a multi-jurisdictional forum for the coordination of domestic violence intervention efforts within Multnomah County.  Founded in 1987, the Council now has over 40 member agencies, including criminal justice, health care, victim services, alcohol and drug treatment and children's service agencies.

The FVCC works to ensure the safety, well-being, and stability of all members of families - especially women and children- in Multnomah County by ending family violence. The council focuses primarily on violence against former or current adult intimate partners. This violence may include emotional, physical, or sexual abuse and is generally referred to as domestic violence. Abuse may include threats, harm, injury, harassment, exertion of power and control, terrorism, or damage to living beings or property.

The FVCC provides consultation and technical assistance to Multnomah County and the City of Portland, professionals working in the field of domestic violence intervention, and community groups who want to get involved in ending domestic violence.
