Mission

NCADV is the voice of victims and survivors. We are the catalyst for changing society to have zero tolerance for domestic violence. We do this by effecting public policy, increasing understanding of the impact of domestic violence, and providing programs and education that drive that change.

Notes from the nonprofit

The vision of NCADV is to create a culture where domestic violence is not tolerated; and where society empowers victims and survivors, and holds abusers accountable.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.

The NCADV Public Policy Office collaborates with other national organizations to promote legislation and policies that serve and protect victims and survivors of domestic violence, and we work to change the narrative surrounding domestic violence. We seek macro-level change in order to create a society in which domestic violence is never tolerated or minimized, in which victims and survivors are respected, and in which service providers have the resources to serve all victims and survivors. In turn, we rely on our members and our partners’ members to provide grassroots support, contacting their congressional delegations, and making their voices heard at the local level. We also provide technical support to individuals and groups seeking information on legislation, laws, policy, studies, and other resources pertaining to domestic violence at the national level.

Since 1994, NCADV has been memorializing the many women, children, and men killed by abusers in the U.S. through our Remember My Name™ project. Twenty three years ago, RMN™ was created by Ms. Magazine and NCADV to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence, honor those who have lost their lives, and spotlight the all-too-common outcome of abusers’ choices and actions. Each year, we produce a memorial poster listing the names and ages of those killed by an abuser and the state in which they died.

NCADV’s Financial Education Project addresses one of the main barriers victims encounter when seeking safety and independence—financial independence. One of the most common reasons victims of domestic violence either stay with or return to an abuser is because they fear they will be unable to provide financially for themselves and/or their children. In 2000, NCADV collaborated with the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) to develop these financial education materials in an ongoing effort to support victims of domestic violence in their endeavors to achieve economic self-sufficiency. The Financial Education Project materials include topics such as safety planning, budgeting, identity theft, banking, predatory lending, credit, getting a job, money management, and taxes.
