About Us

Ohio Domestic Violence Network

The Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN) advances the principle that all people have the right to an oppression- and violence-free life; fosters changes in economic, social, and political systems; and brings leadership, expertise, and best practices to community programs. This requires connections with organizations and individuals to create a clear vision and collective voice for social and systemic change. We support and strengthen the response to domestic violence through training, public awareness, and technical assistance, and promote social change through implementation of prevention and public policy.
