As a volunteer Board member of NCADV I cannot tell you what an honor it is to serve along side such wonderful co-Board members, Rita Smith our incredible Executive Director and of course the entire staff at the Colorado office and the policy supporters in DC. When I first attended an NCADV Conference in 2008 I knew I had found an organization that was and still does make a difference in the lives of abused women, their families and in the lives of Advocates across this nation. I have been honored to sit/stand in the places that some of the greatest women in the battered women's movement have stood before me. I knew I had some very big shoes and in some cases moccasins to fill as I took on the duties of being a Board member. As a former victim, a survivor, a Native woman, an Elder and as a mother, grandmother and great grandmother I cannot express how hard this organization fights for the rights of women to live a peaceful life regardless of color, social class, ethnicity, age, familial status, citizenship or immigrant status,or choice of life partners. Thank You NCADV for making a difference in MY life.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

The change needed to make a difference for me is not from NCADV but from the systems that allow abuse

AS A Board Member I have had the opportunity to work with a group that have kept the vision of women living safe and peaceful lives. Meeting some of the bravest most courageous women in America that have survived the horrors of domestic violence while protecting their children in itself is a very humbling experience and standing along side the women that have worked so diligently to see that those women have the resources they need as they move forward is an honor.

The Great!

Seeing the hard work of this organization despite the current economy. Putting togeteher the minds and efforts of all involved to continue the work has been a challenge but everyone is a willing partner in doing whatever it takes to continue the work

I would not change the organization itself but would strive to increase the funding NCADV needs to further the work of being a voice and a resource for families experiencing domestic abuse.

As a Board Member and a survivor of domestic violence I am honored to serve with an organization and a group of activist that always gives a voice to the victim/survivors whose voices have been silenced.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As an advocate who joined the domestic violence movement in the 80's and a newbie to working with activists NCADV has taught me a lot in the last 20 plus years. I feel I am a much better advocate for the people I work for because of the training and personal mentoring I have received from the staff, board and survivors I have met through NCADV.

In the 1970s and 1980s, when the movement to end violence against women and children had just started hotline and shelter services for survivors of violence, I attended a meeting where Rita Smith had just been hired as Executive Director. Since that time, Ms. Smith has been one of the most revered people in our movement. She has been a rock, unflinchingly brave, a gentle and caring leader who inspires all of us to continue in this work. Because of her work and commitment, NCADV leads in policy development and services for those of us who live for and work a time when everyone will live free from violence.

The Great!

From my perspective the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence has been the one organization on the national level that has stayed true to its roots - working for all abused women and children from a grassroots perspective. I am honored to be assoiated with them - for over 30 years!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working on the local, state and national level - NCADV has always been in the forefront of advocacy and information sharing. This would be a much poorer movement without them.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way for them to have reliable and adequate sources of income so that their work could entirely be focused on "the work".

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The committment of leadership to grassroots advocacy.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Amazingly diverse participants of all ethnicities, faiths, sexual orientations, degrees of disability,etc.etc.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide significant support to the grassroots organizations that began and sustain the movement to end violence against womn and children in this world.

Ways to make it better...

NCADV had more - and more reliable income sources.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Financial

One thing I'd also say is that...

NCADV has been there throughout the history of the grassroots movement - changing with time and focus - but not mission. Congratulations on a job still being well done.
