Fighting for Domestic Violence Victims & Children
We are passionate about improving the lives of domestic violence victims and at-risk children in the District. We 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 city so victims and other needy DC residents can access free legal services on a wide range of issues, social services referrals, crisis support, and safety planning.
Our vision is a future where there is no domestic violence and all victims and at-risk children live in safe and stable homes.
