Mid- Shore Council on Family Violence




The Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence (MSCFV) is a non-profit organization that continues to grow in response to the diverse needs that victims face in the day-to-day struggle to survive. Our philosophy and mission are carried out every day in the five counties we serve – Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Talbot and Queen Anne’s. MSCFV has its main office in Caroline County and offices in each of the other counties served. MSCFV provides for emergency needs through a 24-hour hotline and shelter, legal protection, legal advocacy, and counseling. MSCFV also has a children’s program as well as a certified Abuser Intervention Program. The MSCFV provides trainings and implements public awareness efforts to educate the community about domestic violence.

 MSCFV was incorporated in 1980 as a non-profit agency that provides services to victims of domestic violence in the counties of Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot. The agency has grown and developed over the years, acquiring the shelter in 1986 and opening outreach-counseling offices in Kent, Queen Anne’s, Dorchester and Talbot Counties in 1991 and 1992. The agency offers primarily victim-based services, but provides counseling to all family members involved in domestic violence.
