The Domestic Violence Liaison (DVL) is a partnership between DOW, NJ Coalition to End Domestic Violence (NJCEDV), Division of Child Protection & Permanency (DCP&P) offices and county-based domestic violence programs. Domestic Violence Liaisons are co-located at DCP&P local offices to provide on-site case consultation to DCP&P staff and support and advocacy for domestic violence victims and their children. The purpose of this collaboration is to:

  • Increase safety and improve outcomes for children and their non-offending parents/caregivers in domestic violence situations, and
  • Strengthen DCF/DCP&P capacity to provide effective assessments and intervention for families in domestic violence situations.
