Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The mission of NCCADV is to provide the membership and allied professionals with the tools necessary to build a society that is dedicated to ending violence against women through support, education and awareness.


NCCADV will partner with members and allied professionals to empower all NC communities to successfully build a society that prevents and eliminates violence against women.


We believe that domestic violence is a pattern of domination in which batterers

intentionally choose to cause fear, injury and/or pain in order to gain and maintain power and control. In addition to physical violence, it often includes sexual, emotional and economic abuse. We believe domestic violence is absolutely unacceptable and wrong.

We believe gender inequality plays a central role at both the personal and societal level in creating and maintaining domestic violence. We believe it is vital to understand and eliminate all forms of oppression including sexism, racism and homophobia. We believe that it is critical to provide services to survivors of all races, ages, classes, religions and ethnic groups, sexual orientation, and abilities.

We believe in the power of the shared experience to illuminate the issues we face and in working together to create personal and social change, while intentionally and actively creating safe places for women. We believe the voice and experience of battered women must be the foundation of domestic violence work and that the battered women's movement can change society.
