Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence
The mission of the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence is to eliminate personal and institutional violence against women through programs providing support and safety to battered women, direct services, public information and education, systems advocacy and social change activities. The members of PCADV work toward this goal through supportive, cooperative practices in all aspects of our individual programs and collective efforts.
PCADV’s 60 community-based Programs and statewide office are joined in a coalition, acting hand in hand on behalf of domestic violence victims and their children. The community Programs and statewide Coalition form interconnecting links in a chain of services and support so victims can find safety, obtain justice and build new lives free of abuse. Working together, we complement each other’s efforts. And, united as a Coalition, we multiply our influence on policies and laws that affect victims.
