The City of Auburn has many resources to support victims/survivors of domestic violence. Our team can also help with immediate shelter needs, talk with victims about what's next in the criminal justice process, and help victims connect to the resources that are available to stay safe. For more information please view a list of additional resources (PDF).


Information for Victims

If you are a victim of domestic violence, or are concerned about a family member, friend, co-worker or neighbor, visit the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence victim resource page to get help, find information or for assistance with problem solving. 

  • Domestic Violence Victim Impact Panel (DV VIP)
    The Domestic Violence Victim Impact Panel is where survivors of domestic violence come and tell about how family members (including children) were killed because of domestic violence and how the defendants' behavior affects the children in the home and the community in general. The Panel is essential to help survivors in their healing process. It is more for the survivors than it is for the people who are court ordered to attend. Please view www.ccradv.org for detailed information.

WARNING: People can tell what Internet sites you've visited on your computer. Be safe! Use the Internet at a local library, a friend's house, or at work. Learn how to protect your safety.

You can also find information about Protection Orders here.

Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE)

VINE is an automated victim notification system that allows victims of domestic violence and other crimes to register to be notified of an inmate's release from jail, and to get information on charges and bail amount. VINE provides information on the custody status of inmates who have been booked into any King County Department of Adult Detention facility.

Victims and the general public will be able to call the VINE system toll-free, to verify whether an inmate is in custody, and register to receive automatic telephone notification upon an inmate's custody status change or obtain information on the VINELink website or call 1-877-425-VINE (8463).

Callers will also be provided with information on additional victim assistance services. VINE is available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Russian, Tagalog, Chinese and Amharic.

Funding for VINE system implementation was provided to King County by the City of Seattle's Domestic and Sexual Violence Prevention Office, through a federal Violence Against Women Act grant. Funding for system maintenance is provided through US West.
