Focus on Impact: Domestic Abuse Resource Center

The Domestic Abuse Resource Center (DARC) serves adults, teens, and children who have experienced unhealthy relationships in Allamakee, Bremer, Chickasaw, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties.

  • Legal Advocacy
  • Housing resources
  • Bi-lingual advocacy
  • Child and teen advocacy
  • Support Group facilitation
  • Services to survivors of domestic and dating violence in seven counties of northeast Iowa.
