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.
NCADV's work includes coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels; support for the provision of community-based, non-violent alternatives - such as safe home and shelter programs - for battered women and their children; public education and technical assistance; policy development and innovative legislation; focus on the leadership of NCADV's caucuses and task forces developed to represent the concerns of organizationally under represented groups; and efforts to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children. NCADV's main office is located in Denver, Colorado. The Public Policy Office of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is a national leader in the effort to create and influence federal legislation that positively effects the lives of battered women and children. We work closely with women's advocates at the local, state and national level to identify the issues facing battered women, their children and the people who serve them and to develop a legislative agenda to address these issues. Located in Washington, D.C., the Public Policy Office represents the needs of its over 2,000 members and coalition partners to elected officials in Congress.
