Our Mission

The Maryland Uniform Crime Report indicates that law enforcement officers responded to 30,534 domestic violence incidents in 2015. This includes 622 incidents in the five Eastern Shore counties served by the Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence: Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot.


As the central point of access for assistance on domestic violence within these counties, the mission of Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence is to create healthy opportunities to break the cycle of domestic violence through intervention and prevention by providing shelter, counseling, services, and advocacy for victims and abusers; and by changing society’s attitudes and systems which permit and promote such violence against women, men and families.


In 2017, MSCFV served 387 victims of family violence and their 503 children.
