Utah Domestic Violence Council (UDVC) was founded in 1978 by Utah Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS).

Initially formed as a community forum to start the necessary dialogue about domestic violence in the state of Utah.

UDVC incorporated in 1993 and, in 1994, the Council became independent of DCFS.

Designated as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization in 1998.

In 2013, UDVC adopted a new set of bylaws and transitioned from a council to a coalition.

Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is recognized nationally as the State domestic violence coalition in Utah.
