What Level of Membership Best Suits You?

NCADV looks to build the movement through relationships with organizations whose primary mission is to provide direct services to victims and survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault, individuals supporting NCADV’s mission, as well as state and national coalitions providing technical support to DV/SA programs, other non-profit organizations, government agencies and corporations. Since each group serves a critical role in advocating and supporting victims and survivors and has different needs, NCADV has created membership levels for each: Individual, Associate and Affiliate.
