DVIRC HISTORY In 2010, twenty-three DV agencies come together for a discussion about how to use technology to better understand what services were available to survivors and how could agencies enhance communications through a technological platform.

In 2011, though 23 agencies had been involved in the information gathering state, only 5 agencies signed a letter of agreement to join DVIRC. In 2012, the DVIRC grew and within one year, 20 DV agencies had signed on.
