Mission Statement

The Network is a collaborative membership organization dedicated to improving the lives of those impacted by domestic violence through education, public policy and advocacy, and the connection of community members to direct service providers.

Description

Our Programs

Education and Public Awareness
The Centralized Training Institute (CTI) offers essential training for domestic violence advocates and allied professionals. CTI staff and expert trainers work toward increasing the knowledge and skills of participants to enable them to better serve families experiencing domestic violence.

Public Policy and Advocacy
The Network is the leading systemic advocacy voice, in addition to being the forum for information exchange, within the Cook County domestic violence services community. The Network is committed to keeping informed on what’s happening in the field of domestic violence service provision, along with legal and social implications surrounding domestic violence, both locally and nationally.

Connection For Community Members
The State of Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline is a confidential, toll free link to community-based domestic violence services. It operates 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, has access to more than 140 different languages, and is TTY available for speech- and hearing- impaired callers.
