Kansas domestic violence victim services are effective according to recent study

Docking Institute logoThe Kansas Governor's Grants Program collaborated with the Docking Institute of Public Affairs at Fort Hays State University to design the 2007 "Domestic Violence Victim Services: Awareness, Use and Satisfaction Project." The project was guided by the following research objectives:


  1. Estimated prevalence of domestic violence incidents among adult Kansas women in the past year.
  2. Prevalence and type of help victims are seeking in Kansas via service providers, family & friends, and law enforcement officers.
  3. Identification of barriers for victims seeking service, including emotional and instrumental barriers.
  4. Prevalence of reporting abuse to Kansas law enforcement.
  5. Incidence of met and unmet needs, including medical, counseling, legal, other instrumental assistance.
  6. Estimate known abuser correlations to the following: gun ownership, alcohol/drug use, joblessness, pet abuse, etc.
  7. Examine the socio-demographic characteristics of all respondents
  8. Estimate the awareness level among respondents for available services and sources of information about services.
