Mission Statement

The Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (ANDVSA) was formed in 1978 by concerned women to address domestic violence and sexual assault in Alaska. The corporation was formed for exclusively charitable, educational and scientific purposes. The specific and primary purposes are:1.    To provide communication and linkage among programs and organizations whose primary focus is the elimination of domestic violence and sexual assault; 2.    To promote and support cooperation among agencies and institutions committed to challenging and changing the conditions that allow violence to continue; 3.    To expose the roots of domestic violence and sexual assault in the institutionalized discrimination against women, children and those who are viewed as having less power; 4.    To assure that the voices, experiences and expressed views of survivors of sexual and physical violence are a guiding force in development and implementation of initiatives to end violence; 5.    To support full autonomy to community based programs so that control and direction of services provided remains in the hands of persons being served; 6.    To ensure that funding for programs, agencies and services is sought in a cooperative and non-competitive fashion; and7.    To support a more just, ethical and humane model of social service delivery.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Program Description:

Victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and their advocates continue to identify the need for civil and legal representation as a top priority. ANDVSA's Legal Advocacy Project responds to this vital need by providing both direct legal assistance through our staff attorneys and Pro Bono Program and training to victim advocates and others across the state. Since receiving Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) funding nearly 300 Alaska attorneys have volunteered with the Legal Advocacy Project, donating on average between 25-85 hours to each case, equaling millions of dollars in attorney time donated to the project. The Legal Advocacy Project trains and recruits volunteer attorneys. Since its inception in 1999, the ANDVSA Pro Bono program has received more than 2000 referrals, operated an Information and Referral Hotline, provided award-winning support materials to attorney's - including our Family Law Practice Manual and Women's Legal Rights Handbook, and provided continuing legal education and training to more than 1500 victim advocates, attorneys, law enforcement officers, court personnel and more.
