Domestic Violence

CYFD serves more than 10,500 adults—both survivors and offenders—affected each year by domestic violence. We contract with nearly 40 non-profits throughout the state to provide shelter and support services to families in need.

If you are interesting in becoming a CYFD-approved Domestic Violence Offender Treatment/Intervention (DVOTI) Provider, please review the CYFD DVOTI application and New Mexico Regulations governing court-ordered DVOTI programs (NMAC 8.8.7). If, upon review, you are still interested in becoming a CYFD-approved DVOTI Provider, please email or call (505) 827-8400 for more information.

The amount of time it takes to approve an agency for inclusion on the CYFD-approved list is dependent on the applicant and how long it takes to submit a complete application. Once a complete application is submitted, a preliminary review of the application will be conducted. If any information is missing or clarification is needed, the agency will be contacted. Following that, a visit will be scheduled with the agency to discuss the agency’s DVOTI program including but not limited to proposed group schedule, curriculum, rules and policies. Once all requirements have been met, the agency will be added to the list of CYFD-approved DVOTI Providers and notification of such will be sent to court personnel in the new agency’s area.
