Shelters for Victims of Domestic Violence: A Question for Discussion
Understanding what services and aid are available to victims is an important part of educating oneself about them. This week’s readings are all about domestic violence victims. This sort of violence is defined in Florida by Florida Statute 741.28(2). (2020). Domestic violence facilities are also mentioned in the legal guidelines found in several other Florida statutes (see Florida Statute 39.905). Please read these sections of the Florida Statutes in preparation for this discussion post.

Please select a county in Florida and explore the domestic violence center (also known as domestic violence shelter) in that region after reading the statutes and module material. A center should be established in each county. DO NOT use one of the three shelters listed in the PowerPoint that serve Orange, Osceola, and Seminoles counties. Please respond to the following questions after investigating the center/shelter:
1. Describe the services provided and available at the victim services center/shelter.
2. Check to see if they match the Florida Statute 39.905(1) standards (c).
3. How would you improve the center/shelter if you were in control and money was not an issue? What other services do you think you should look into?
