News and Events



  • Each year in order to ensure that all victims of domestic violence are honored, DART hosts a vigil in each of the parishes we serve during the month of October.
  • These vigils serve as a demonstration to the communities the wide spread problem of domestic violence in our state and the need to hold perpetrators accountable for their violence before homicides occurs. [Click Here to review "REMEMBER MY NAME VIDEO".]
  • The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence [NCADV], in conjunction with Ms. Magazine started this project in 1994 to create a registry of the names of woman who lost their lives due to domestic violence. [Please watch news video of Lincoln Parish 2014 Candle Light Vigil.]
