24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

I attended “Two Days in June” on June 2 and 3.  Sponsored by the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance (ICDVVA), this annual conference (23 year) provides critical information on new research and innovative approaches to the delivery of client services.  It also provides program staff, statewide, the opportunity to interface and to share ideas and to problem solve.

The Council was created by the Idaho legislature in 1982.  The original funding came from a $15 surcharge from state marriage license fees.  Today, the Council is the conduit for the potential disbursement of grant funds that are provided through the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), and the Domestic Violence Project Account.  These competitive grant funds ensure that Idaho’s victims of crime are provided essential services in a timely manner.

The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) partnership with ICDVVA spans many years and has provided the WCA the opportunity to positively touch many lives.  May I take this opportunity to thank ICDVVA for their support, not only through their grant arm but also through a dynamic and helpful staff and committed regional Council members, of the WCA’s efforts to bring safety, healing and freedom to innumerable victims of physical and/or sexual violence.
