Saving lives by working together to prevent domestic violence homicide

The Domestic Violence High Risk Team (DVHRT) Model is a nationally recognized domestic violence homicide prevention program created by the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center in 2004, in response to the domestic violence homicide of our client in 2002.

The DVHRT Model incorporates evidence-based risk assessment into a community’s domestic violence response system to identify the most dangerous cases. These cases are monitored by a multidisciplinary team that shares case information and implements case-specific intervention plans to mitigate the danger. Our nationally recognized model focuses on increasing both victim safety and offender accountability.
