National Domestic Violence Stats

Narcissist Abuse is a real issue that our country does not recognize, while domestic violence is out of control and under serviced. Emotional abuse is recognized yet there is no one to help us. Here are some stats from the National Network to End Domestic Abuse. The following figures represent the information provided by 1,752 participating programs about services provided during the 24-hour survey period.
71,828 Victims Served in One Day – 40,302 domestic violence victims found refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing provided by local domestic violence programs.

31,526 adults and children received non-residential assistance and services, including counseling, legal advocacy, and children’s support groups.

12,197 Unmet Requests for Services in One Day, of Which 63% (7,728) Were for Housing Victims made more than 12,000 requests for services— including emergency shelter, housing, transportation, childcare, legal representation, and more—that could not be provided because programs did not have the resources to provide these services. In addition to housing and emergency shelter, programs reported that the service requests they
could not meet were housing advocacy, legal representation, and financial assistance.

Cause of Unmet Requests for Help
24% reported reduced government funding.
14% reported cuts from private funding sources.
12% reported staffing cuts or reductions.
Across the United States, 1,235 staff positions were eliminated in the past year. Most of these positions (79%) were direct service providers, such as shelter staff or legal advocates. This means that there were fewer advocates to answer calls for help or provide needed services.
