About the Services Guidelines for Domestic Violence Service Providers
The Illinois Services Guidelines for Domestic Violence Service providers is a comprehensive compilation of minimum and encouraged practices for survivor centered service providers. These guidelines cover requirements, policies and samples related to administrative functions, counseling, advocacy, adult and child services, shelter, prevention and more. These guidelines have been developed collaboratively between the Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence and the Illinois Department of Human Services. They are reviewed periodically for necessary updates with the most recent revision being adopted in summer 2021.
