NCCADV received an increase in requests for our services in 2017. We met the need with a growth in the number and variety of trainings offered, more one-on-one technical assistance, and an expansion of programs. Through our programs we increased the capacity of domestic violence (DV) service providers and community partners to improve services in their communities. We did so by supporting statewide work related to children and teens, coordinated community response teams, economic justice efforts, IPV within the healthcare system, Latinx survivors, and prevention efforts. Our legal team served even more clients in court, while our policy initiatives initiated laws that will enhance victim safety. Here are just a few statistics about our work in 2017:
- NCCADV provided a total of 149 statewide trainings for 3,539 people in 2017.
- The CASE project trained and collaborated with 13 DV agencies to screen at least 260 children for trauma.
- NCCADV responded to over 1,700 separate requests for technical assistance.
