The Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (OPDV), created in 1992, is the country’s only executive level state agency dedicated to the issue of domestic violence. It replaced the former Governor’s Commission on Domestic Violence established in 1983. Our mission is to improve New York State’s response to and prevention of domestic violence with the goal of enhancing the safety of all New Yorkers in their intimate and family relationships. OPDV is located in Albany, New York.

Our Mission:
To improve New York State’s response to and prevention of domestic violence with the goal of enhancing the safety of all New Yorkers in their intimate and family relationships.

Our Vision:
To create a State in which communities and systems are committed to supporting and promoting equality, dignity and respect so that individuals can feel safer in their intimate and family relationships.

Call 911 if you are in immediate danger and the police will respond.
Seek treatment at a hospital emergency department if needed. Hospitals are open and a safe place to go for medical care.
Add NYS resource info (above) under a fake contact name to avoid suspicion.
Create a code word for friends and family that will tell them you need help.
Know the areas in your home with a lock on the door.
Prepare a go-bag with important documents, medication and extra clothing.
Tell your family and friends where you will flee if you need to leave urgently.
Talk with your children about safety so they have a sense of acceptable situations.
Advocates are available to help you days, evenings and weekends.
Be an Ally:

Listen without judgment.
Support their decisions – they made their choices for a reason.
Remind them that it's not their fault – there is no excuse for abuse.
Let them know all services are still up and running – 911, shelters, healthcare
Refer them to the services above – text, chat or call an advocate.
Help them brainstorm other places they can stay.
Remind them that they are not alone.
Build on their strengths – they've survived.
Talk about their options.
Ask how you can help and what they need.
Don't tell them what to do. It’s time they have control over their own life
