Domestic abuse service center
In October 2019, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Domestic Abuse Service Center (DASC) and also honored Domestic Violence Awareness Month. DASC continues to focus on support services available to victims, addressing the severity of domestic violence and sexual assault in this region, state and country. Our goal is to help as many people as we can. And we want you to know that we’re here for those in need.
The Domestic Abuse Service Center provides victims of domestic violence access to the legal assistance and social services they need. You can file for an order for protection, learn about your rights and other information from advocates on site.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: To maintain the safety and well-being of Hennepin County community members and staff, all services available at the Domestic Abuse Service Center will be provided remotely. These remote services, including advocacy, Orders for Protection, and safety planning, can be accessed by calling (612) 348-5073.
Please be aware that the Domestic Abuse Service Center office located in the Government Center will temporarily be unavailable beginning March 18. All services will be available remotely until further notice.
We strongly encourage individuals to contact the services number—(612) 348-5073—before coming to the Domestic Abuse Service Center.
However, if someone finds themselves in the Government Center seeking help concerning domestic abuse, a conference room has been set up on the same level equipped with phones to call the services number: (612) 348-5073. The room is LL0720—a video has been created with directions for reference.
