Due to recent concerns over the coronavirus and guidance from the state, ODVN has decided to convert all in-person trainings to free webinars that are scheduled through May. If you have registered for the training, you will receive an email notification prior to the date of the training with information including the link to the webinar. Because of high demand, webinars for April 21st and May 1st have reached capacity and are full. A video of the webinar will be available on our Online Learning Portal within a week of the actual recording. Refunds for all trainings in March, April and May are being processed. All trainings affected by this will be marked with a red asterisk (*).

If you have any questions or concerns regarding any scheduled trainings you have registered for, please feel free to contact our Training Coordinator, Denise Kontras, at denisek@odvn.org. Thank you and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation at this time.

Caucuses and Task Forces

The Ohio Domestic Violence Network supports local member programs through sponsoring task forces and caucuses that address the ways in which domestic violence impacts different communities and groups of people. Caucuses and task forces are made up of professionals, service providers, advocates, and community members who are interested in issues related to specific underserved populations. ODVN has task forces addressing domestic violence and disabilities, domestic violence and immigration, and domestic violence in the LGBTQI community. ODVN also facilitates the Women of Color and Child Advocacy Caucus.

In addition, ODVN assists communities in developing coordinated community responses to domestic violence and sponsors issue-specific networking caucuses and taskforces.
