To receive appropriate services, a domestic violence (DV) victim often goes through a daunting process, filled with roadblocks and re-traumatizing events. This can make accessing support systems discouraging and exhausting for the victims and their family. Fortunately, the city of Denver has created collaborative service models that enable access to comprehensive services through any literal or figurative “door” a victim may enter. The “no wrong door” philosophy is the hallmark of victim services in Denver and provides the foundation for a number of innovative programs that support crime victims.
