Fighting for Domestic Violence Victims & Children in the District of Columbia
We are passionate about improving the lives of domestic violence victims and at-risk children. Our small but experienced staff recruit, train and support hundreds of dedicated volunteer attorneys each year to handle emergency protection order, custody and child support cases on behalf of victims, and serve as court-appointed advocates for vulnerable children living with abuse, neglect and other dangerous circumstances.
We operate free, walk-in clinics throughout the District so victims and caregivers of at-risk children can access information, social services referrals, crisis support, safety planning and legal services on a wide range of issues affecting victims and children.
Our vision is a future where there is no domestic violence and all victims and at-risk children live in safe and stable homes.
