Domestic violence is a preventable crime; however, it is a complex problem that requires
multifaceted efforts. Living with domestic abuse is terrifying, and a victim⿿s immigrant status
may further isolate her and thus, place her at greater risk. Women in diverse communities face
numerous obstacles to reporting domestic violence. While culture plays a significant role in
shaping personal behavior, it should not be viewed as an automatic predictor of how a person
will respond to domestic abuse. Each case is unique and should be assessed with aspects of
culture utilized as relevant factors. Other crimes such as homicide, sex offenses and drug use
have significant levels of co-occurrence with domestic abuse. Therefore, efforts to reduce
domestic violence simultaneously lower the rates of these other crimes.
The efforts of the City to reduce domestic violence has had a positive impact.

NEW YORK CITY HOUSING AUTHORITY (NYCHA) HAS INCREASED ITS PRIORITY LEVELS SO THAT FAMILIES HAVE MORE OPTIONS IN SECURING SUITABLE AND SAFE HOMES FOR THEIR FAMILIES.
