The D.C. Coalition Against Domestic Violence is a resource both for the thousands of adults and children experiencing domestic violence in the District each year, and for the local organizations that serve them. As the District’s “statewide” Coalition, DCCADV works to provide a comprehensive and coordinated approach to eliminating domestic violence. The Coalition offers support and services for today, and education, advocacy and leadership to shape a violence-free future. As a leading service provider and advocate for victims of domestic violence in the District, the Coalition serves more than 7,000 survivors of abuse each year—this includes every person who seeks a court order to protect themselves and their children from an abusive partner.
