The vision of NCADV is to create a culture where domestic violence is not tolerated; and where society empowers victims and survivors, and holds abusers accountable.
NCADV is the voice of victims and survivors. We are the catalyst for changing society to have zero tolerance for domestic violence. We do this by affecting public policy, increasing understanding of the impact of domestic violence, and providing programs and education that drive that change.

The NCADV Public Policy Office collaborates with other national organizations to promote legislation and policies that serve and protect victims and survivors of domestic violence, and we work to change the narrative surrounding domestic violence.
We seek macro-level change in order to create a society in which domestic violence is never tolerated or minimized, in which victims and survivors are respected, and in which service providers have the resources to serve all victims and survivors.
In turn, we rely on our members and our partners’ members to provide grassroots support, contacting their congressional delegations and making their voices heard at the local level.

Since 1994, NCADV has been memorializing the many women, children, and men killed by abusers in the U.S. through our Remember My Name™ project.
One of the most common reasons victims of domestic violence either stay with or return to an abuser is because they fear they will be unable to provide financially for themselves and or their children. In collaboration with the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), NCADV hosts financial education webinars to educate victims and survivors about rebuilding financially after domestic violence.
