Utah-based real estate investor Tiffany Walden dedicates time and energy to supporting the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition (UDVC). A statewide organization committed to ending domestic violence in Utah, the UDVC provides safety, support, and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence. It also offers educational opportunities and raises awareness for the community.
The UDVC was launched in 1995 as a driving force in creating systemic change to end domestic violence in Utah. Its mission is to provide leadership, education, and resources to advance the cause of ending domestic violence in Utah communities.
Various programs and services give hope to survivors. These include a 24-hour crisis line, an emergency shelter, court advocacy, support groups, and legal assistance. The UDVC also provides training and technical assistance to organizations working to end domestic violence. Its efforts have benefited law enforcement, healthcare providers, and social service agencies.
UDVC’s long-term goal is a commitment to creating a safe and supportive environment for survivors of domestic violence. Its advocacy work has led to the passing of important legislation, including the Domestic Violence Offender Gun Ban, which prohibits individuals convicted of domestic violence from owning firearms in the state.
Domestic violence continues to be a significant problem in Utah and the United States. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, more than one in three women and about one in four men experience intimate partner violence in their lifetimes. The UDVC hopes to end this violent epidemic and support those who are affected.
“I believe that every person has the right to live a life free from violence and abuse,” said Tiffany Walden Utah. “My goal when volunteering and supporting the UDVC is to provide safety, support, and resources to survivors. Hopefully, there’s a future where domestic violence is no longer part of society.”
The UDVC is a vital resource for survivors of domestic violence in Utah. Volunteers like Walden help turn its efforts into reality, helping to create a community where everyone is safe, supported, and valued.
Anyone experiencing domestic violence can contact the UDVC directly for help at www.udvc.org. The website also includes general information, tips, and ways to get involved like Walden.
