Structure

The three components of WVCADV share the common mission to end personal and institutional violence in the lives of women, children and men.

 

WVCADV Member Programs

14 licensed domestic violence programs provide direct services such as:

  • Emergency shelter offers a safe place for victims to stay if they are in need of emergency housing. While there, survivors learn about available options and develop a safety plan.
  • 24-Hour emergency hotline gives 24-hour a day access to advocates who provide crisis intervention and emotional support, advocacy, information, admission into shelter and referrals if the shelter is full.
  • Advocacy and other support services can include help in obtaining medical care, legal protection, housing, furniture, clothing, training and educational services, employment, social services, emergency transportation, and translation services.
  • Peer support counseling provides information, emotional support and help in identifying options and building solutions. Programs offer referrals to long-term therapeutic services.
  • Battered women’s support groups provide victims with an opportunity to be with other women who have been abused and with whom they may have much in common.
  • Services for children include counseling and support to help children understand what is happening and to provide education and tools to break the generational cycle of domestic violence.
  • Monitored visitation services offer a protected, neutral setting for exchange or visitation with children to occur. 
  • Perpetrator Intervention Programs are educational programs offered in some areas of the state for perpetrators of domestic violence to learn to recognize and be accountable for their abusive behavior.
