South Valley Services has served the community since 1998.
History of South Valley Services
South Valley Services began as a grassroots effort in response to a growing need in our community. A group of professionals, community leaders, and citizens recognized that survivors of domestic violence were facing tremendous difficulty finding safe and accessible services. They concluded that a domestic violence shelter was of vital interest to the health and well-being of our community. The result of a monumental community effort, South Valley Services opened on February 10, 1998 with the objective of providing a safe shelter, resource and referral services, and self-sufficiency programs for survivors of domestic violence.
Programs at South Valley Services have developed to keep up with the most current research and best practices. Based on this research South Valley Services operates under a coordinated community response model this includes shelter and supportive services. Working with our community partners to better serve victims of violence South Valley Services opened a Community Resource Center in 2013 in West Jordan City Hall and a third location in Riverton City Hall in 2014. Both locations offer community services including help and navigation of the community resources that are available to the victims of domestic violence.
South Valley Services has an active Prevention and Education team that educates the community about domestic violence and coordinates the Central Valley Coalition Against Domestic Abuse and COLAVI. For more information on our coalitions please see the Coalitions page.
