Who We Are
WSCADV is the leading voice to end domestic violence in Washington.
Founded in 1990 by survivors and their allies, WSCADV is a non-profit network of domestic violence programs. These programs serve survivors all over the state. And WSCADV serves these programs by:
- Working for laws that ensure safety and justice for survivors
- Providing specialized support to domestic violence agencies
- Conducting research to promote local-level change
- Publishing papers on critical issues
Our member programs work tirelessly all over the state to help survivors towards safety and freedom.
Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors provides strong leadership and oversight of WSCADV. Of the 18 seats, two are at-large positions, the rest are filled by individuals from member programs. The Board strives to maintain diversity in its makeup, and additionally ensures diversity by seating one member each from constituency caucuses: Women of Color, Survivors, Women in Recovery, Queer, and Jewish Caucuses.
- Mission: The Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence mobilizes our member programs and allies to end domestic violence through advocacy and action for social change.
- Funding: We rely on a combination of government contracts, grants, fees, and donations. Approximately 87% of funds go to program work and 13% to support administration.
