Direct service programs across the state have been busy. In calendar year 2003, they reported (through PDQ) helping 18,044 individuals, providing them with 215,186 separate services - such as shelter, personal advocacy, transportation, crisis counseling, and legal advocacy.

More than half of those individuals - 11,200, to be exact - sought help because of domestic violence. Statewide, the numbers of people seeking help because of domestic violence increased by about 16 percent increase over 2002. Each year between 10,000 and 11,000 babies are born in Montana. Last year, then, more people were abused by a batterer than babies born.

The Montana Silent Witness Project has determined that abusers have killed 47 women and 5 children between 1990 and 2001. This number does not include domestic homicides committed in the past two years, and in 2003 alone batterers killed an additional 11 people, including 2 children and 1 sheriff's deputy. The number of deaths attributable to domestic violence almost double when you also factor in the deaths of the batterers who killed their intimate partners and then committeed suicide.


The Costs
In addition to the lives lost, the human costs of domestic violence are devastating for individual victims, their children, and their families. The financial costs associated with domestic violence are also huge. In March 2003, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report estimating that through their abuse, batterers ring up a tab of over $5.8 billion per year nationally in their victims' health care costs and lost productivity alone.

The $5.8 billion total does not include the costs incurred by law enforcement agencies as they respond to and investigate domestic violence calls, nor does it factor in the amount of time and money spent in other branches of the civil and criminal legal system.


What you can do to stop Domestic Violence?

The Centers for Disease Control have termed intimate partner violence as the number one health threat facing women in the United States today. The human and financial costs associated with domestic violence are high, and it is not just batterers' victims who pay the price. Most of us have been directly affected - either as victims, family members, neighbors, coworkers, or perpetrators - and many of us want to do something to help stop family violence.

By the way that we act and react in our everyday lives, we can personally broadcast the message that we support survivors, hold batterers accountable for their violent and controlling behavior, and will not tolerate violence. Modeling respectful behavior can carry a lot of weight. In addition, a number of groups and organizations have formed around this issue, check out the Family Violence Prevention Fund Web site for more information.
