Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence envisions a First State where safe, healthy, equitable relationships, families and communities thrive.

The organization's strategic plan goals include:
1) Lead Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) prevention and social change efforts in Delaware;
2) Build capacity of Delaware's system, providers, and services to utilize empowerment advocacy and trauma-informed perspectives;
3) Integrate / expand / reinforce the value of inclusion into all of DCADV's work;
4) Develop and maintain resources (funds, allies, partnerships) to support prevention and social change work.

DCADV works collaboratively with member organizations, system partners, and advocates to engage in efforts to prevent and end intimate partner violence in Delaware.

DCADV provides training and technical assistance to member organizations, empowering agencies and individuals to respond to domestic violence with trauma-informed approaches.

DCADV creates and distributes resources to raise awareness and connect victims of domestic violence with supportive services.

DCADV engages in community outreach to increase awareness of domestic violence and to enange individuals and community partners in prevention and social change work.

DCADV coordinates advocacy efforts with victim advocates to pro-actively address and foster public policy that respects the safety of victims of domestic violence.

DCADV is the federally-recognized state domestic violence coalition with over 20 years of experience.

DCADV is empowered by a talented, dedicated and involved Board of Directors comprised of member organization representatives with direct experience working with victims of domestic violence and at-large community members passionate about ending intimate partner violence.

DCADV is enriched by experienced and committed staff who are knowledgeable and skilled in building collaboration, providing training and technical assistance, leading prevention efforts and public policy advocacy.

DCADV's programming is dynamic, responsive and anchored in the commitment to prevent intimate partner violence.
Each year the organization provides training and technical assistance to domestic violence service providers, law enforcement, the courts, medical personnel, therapists and educators. This training is designed to empower individuals and institutions to respond to domestic violence with a trauma-informed approach. In 2016, DCADV conducted 92 training / prevention events reaching 4,562 individuals.
This past year, DCADV advocated for victim safety through the family court enhancement project, and legislative advocacy. DCADV coordinated the economic empowerment project, partnering with member organizations to address one of the leading causes victims are trapped in abusive relationships, the lack of economic stability and financial support.
DCADV coordinates the Delaware Men's Education Network (MEN), a statewide network of campus, military and community-based partners who come together to support one another and work in collaboration as they strive to engage men in sexual and domestic violence prevention.
DCADV's prevention work also includes two projects funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that address teen dating violence.
DCADV works collaborative with the Women Empowered Against Violence Everywhere, a domestic violence survivors group, and the Women of Color Taskforce. DCADV is currently working in partnership with the Women of Color Task Force in the planning of a healthy relationship conference for teens and young adults.
