Domestic violence happens in every community. In an effort to prevent or reduce the incidence of domestic violence, the South Carolina Department of Social Services provides grants to local shelters and contracts with community agencies throughout the state. Through these grants and contracts the goal of the Domestic Violence Program is prevention and the provision of emergency services.
The South Carolina Department of Social Services does not provide direct services to victims. If you or someone you know is a victim and you need help please call 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or click here.
