In their lifetime, one in 4 women and one in 9 men will be victims of violence from an intimate partner. This widespread violence is deeply damaging to every individual, family, and community it touches.
NCCADV works strategically across the state to identify, address, and end the problem of domestic violence. We rely on donations to help us continue our work. Click to donate and be part of the movement.
How will your gift be used?
NCCADV educates and advocates, and we support the front line workers who accompany survivors on their journeys to well-being. NCCADV is the only statewide entity that works with legislators for laws that better protect victims.
By supporting NCCADV, you help to
1. Promote safety. Domestic violence robs people of their basic human need for safety. Our programs aim to protect victims and stop perpetrators from re-offending.
2. Prevent future violence. In addition to damaging the lives of victims and perpetrators, domestic violence damages children and perpetuates violence in future generations. NCCADV’s prevention programs work to interrupt this cycle.
3. Illuminate a taboo subject. An age-old stigma persists for victims and perpetrators, keeping domestic violence hidden. NCCADV frames domestic violence as a public health and social justice issue and keeps it in the public eye and in front of policy makers.
4. Collaborate for impact. It is impossible to succeed alone. NCCADV collaborates broadly with sister agencies, government agencies, and allied professionals. We work purposefully in a broad context to leverage the resources and energy aimed at ending domestic violence.
5. Foster deeply rooted change. Domestic violence is a result of social injustice. Ending both requires healing and deep change. NCCADV works to improve the systems that enable violence – including families and institutions of health care, education, employment, housing, and more. NCCADV advocates for equity for all and to end the power of privileged people to victimize vulnerable groups.
