Family Violence Council Reports

The San Francisco Family Violence Council was established by local ordinance to increase awareness and understanding of family violence and its consequences, and to recommend programs, policies, and coordination of City services to reduce the incidence of family violence, including child abuse, domestic violence, and elder/dependent adult abuse. The Family Violence Council is tri-chaired by three community-based experts in these different forms of family violence and is staffed by the Department on the Status of Women. The Council recommends and helps implement family violence-related policy changes to the City and issues this report regularly. The report remains the only document that provides a broad view of the statistics and trends related to the full spectrum of family violence in San Francisco.
