Welcome to Iris Domestic Violence Center
Our mission is to empower survivors, prevent relationship violence, and promote justice for victims of domestic and dating violence, their children, and our communities.
For more than 30 years, Iris Domestic Violence Center (formerly operating as CAFVIC/Battered Women's Program) has provided professional, compassionate, and empowering support to survivors of family violence and their children. All services are free and confidential. Services are offered to residential (in-shelter) as well as non-residential survivors. Iris Center serves the parishes of East Baton Rouge, Ascension, Iberville, West Baton Rouge, Pointe Coupee, West Feliciana, and East Feliciana.
