DASC has evolved, through always proudly adhering to their mission statement "to respond to the needs of victims of domestic violence through a trauma informed lens delivered by a diverse and inclusive staff that reflect the community we serve.”
Victims come to DASC daily seeking help, guidance and support. They can receive multiple services in one centralized location, such as, advocacy, filing order for protections, connecting with a prosecution team, and seeking legal consultation and representation from pro-bono attorneys.
DASC is located on the lower level (LL0650) of the Hennepin County Government Center behind the cafeteria. It is served by multiple bus routes and the Government Plaza Station on the METRO Blue Line.
It is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and closed on legal holidays.
