The Ware River Valley Domestic Violence Task Force currently serves Ware, Warren and Hardwick. The mission of the Task Force is to prevent and respond to domestic violence in these towns with community-led, community driven initiatives.
We are a group of community members, survivors, and representatives from local and county agencies that have been at work preventing and ending intimate partner violence since 2000! We meet monthly from September through June every year and in between Task Force meetings to work on community-led and community-driven efforts to end domestic violence.
We are committed to honoring the uniqueness of each individual in our community. We believe that economic status, religion, language, race, ethnicity, ability, education level, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation should not be barriers to getting help in our community or to joining our Task Force. We strive to be an inclusive community group and welcome input into how to improve our efforts at promoting inclusion, honoring diversity, and advancing equity in everything we do. We work on a variety of prevention, outreach, training, service, and service coordination efforts. Come to a meeting to find out more!

The 7th Annual Domestic Violence Awareness Walk was a fabulous community event. It was dedicated to the memory of Shannon Eldredge, long time TaskForce member.
(formerly 10 to 10 Helpline):
The service, now statewide, is for people at risk of harming their partner who want to learn to be safe, and for family, friends and professionals who want to support their efforts to change. The Task Force was integral in launching this first in the nation helpline and the main grant for the helpline is administered through the Town of Ware!
The Ware River Valley Domestic Violence Task Force website is created with the help of volunteers .
