Most communities, even small ones, have developed programs to deal with the problem of domestic violence. This paper explores the community response to domestic violence in Daytona Beach, Florida, with a focus on Daytona Beach Domestic Abuse Council, which provides 24-hour services for victims of spousal abuse through a series of programs. The paper discusses funding sources for the program and examines its effectiveness at solving the problem of domestic abuse in the region.

From the Paper:

"There are many different ways to look at the effectiveness of programs. For domestic violence programs, the most important measure is the reduction of individuals beings abused, however that is accomplished. For others, cost effectiveness is also an issue, particularly in these times of service cutbacks and decreased local, state, and federal funding for social service programs. On this measure, the Domestic Abuse Council is succeeding admirably. It was chosen as one of the organizations eligible for the Florida State Employees Charitable Campaign, not only because of its success with program provision, but because of its low administrative costs which only comprised 17.0% of program expenditures."
