Domestic violence in Idaho

"The demand for services has always been high and continues to be high,” Kelly Miller, Executive Director of Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence, told Boise Weekly.

The report, titled "Domestic Violence Counts 2014," indicates 189 victims of domestic violence found some form of refuge at emergency shelters or transitional housing and 325 received non-residential services from counseling, legal advocacy, children’s support groups or other programs.

The analysis also points to what it calls Idaho's failure to shore up domestic violence services. Full story. Micah Drew, Boise Weekly
