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 (February 25, 2021): To maintain the safety and well-being of Hennepin County community members and staff during the Derek Chauvin trial, all services available at the Domestic Abuse Service Center will be provided remotely until further notice. These remote services, including advocacy, Orders for Protection, and safety planning, can be accessed by calling (612) 348-5073.
The provisional remote services access room in the Government Center—LL0720—will be closed indefinitely on March 1. Those who need to access services should call (612) 348-5073.
