Access to Safe and Affordable Housing When fleeing their abuser, victims of Domestic Violence often face major obstacles locating emergency, transitional and permanent housing.

Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Ensuring the physical safety and protection of victims of Domestic Violence requires an effective response by law enforcement and legislation that restricts an abuser’s access to firearms.

Economic Justice & Financial Self-Sufficiency Access to transportation, comprehensive medical and mental health services, jobs and education are vital for a victim’s successful transition to self-sufficiency.

Serving Child Witnesses & Survivors The training of law enforcement, prosecutors, and court personnel helps the legal system provide effective, compassionate justice to domestic violence victims and their families.

Funding for Domestic Violence Services Adequate funding from both state and federal budgets makes it possible for local Domestic Violence Programs to maintain operations and respond to the needs of thousands of victims and their children annually.

Preserve and Protect Access to Services for Disenfranchised & Vulnerable Populations Preserving basic human rights for immigrants, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and victims of human trafficking is a key priority for PCADV.
