Welcome!

VAdata, managed by the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, is Virginia's web-based data collection system. VAdata was developed to enhance and improve the collection of statewide data from all survivors who use the services of sexual and domestic violence agencies across the state. This project began in April of 1996 through the support of the Violence Against Women Act. VAdata has served as a tool to capture the services provided to survivors of sexual and/or domestic violence since its inception.

"I have family but the services address exactly what I was going through, its been a very important resource in so many ways."


"Mis hijos y yo tenemos mas tranquilidad, yo no tengo mas miedo (Translation: My children and I have more peace of mind, I have no more fear.)"

- Survivors of domestic violence who completed a survey for the community SDVA where they received services. (This survey is a part of the data collected within the VAdata system).

Survivors of violence and advocates in Virginia's 70+ sexual and domestic violence agencies (SDVAs) have been providing data for this system for 20 years. In 2018, Virginia's SDVA advocates responded to 64,440 hotline calls. SDVA advocates provided in-person counseling and services to 30,916 adults and children who are survivors of domestic violence. More than 6,800 adults and children also received shelter services.
