There are no national statistics concerning the exact number of battered and abused women living or have lived in DV shelters, as such information is kept strictly confidential except for those authorized with the "need to know". Some estimates place the count at 300-500,000 yearly. The ABA Commission on Domestic Violence with the aid of FBI statistics place the yearly figure of women who are abused by a spouse or intimate partner at 2-4 million; the reason for the large discrepancy is most incidents go unreported. The 2-million represents the number of documented cases where the woman received medical care or evaluation. Needless to say millions of women and children and a small percentage of men are aided by shelters and organizations throughout the world, not just in the U.S. In the U.S., immigrant women are in the highest group of victim's (a more preferable term survivor's) of domestic violence.

Most mid-size and larger cities have facilities to help both homeless women and those who are victims of domestic abuse. If "trauma treatment" is necessary, the police are likely involved. The police officers who work in the area of "crimes against women" and "domestic violence" are well trained and will advise victims of the resources in the area. If you want to get info for someone else, these police units are excellent resources for the public. You can also search online for "women's shelters" AND [the city].
