A peaceful sky. Calm, lapping waves.
Three crossword puzzles.

DV Crossword: A set of three crossword puzzles created for National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Presented by the nonprofit charity Jennifer Ann's Group®.

The puzzles include clues related to the issue of domestic violence. Our hope is that these will help to increase awareness and knowledge about domestic violence in order to help prevent future violence.

NOTE: These crossword puzzles can be frustrating but that was not our goal! Leave a message if you'd like us to send some clues.

Only available during the Domestic Violence Awareness Month of October!

DV Crossword will be back next October in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM). See you then.


Feel free to ask for hints, etc. Before we release this again next October we will add some hints or figure out how to make the puzzles a bit more manageable.

We hadn't played it since 2019 and didn't realize how difficult many of these clues are!

If there are any other thoughts on the UX or other changes please share your thoughts here about that as well ... thanks!
