Advocates for domestic violence victims say a one-day snapshot of services provided in New Hampshire point up the need for additional funding.
The National Network to End Domestic Violence this week released the results of its survey of 90 percent of domestic violence programs nationwide conducted on Sept. 10, 2014.
Maureen McDonald of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence says the survey shows 286 people were served in the state on Sept. 10 and another 22 were turned away. She says most of those turned away - 68 percent - were seeking housing assistance that couldn't be provided.
McDonald said that of the 286 victims served that day, 145 were provided emergency or transitional housing and 123 victims received counseling and other forms of non-residential assistance.
