As a director of a dual DV&SA programs for 28 years, I have depended on NCADV for the right advice and know that they are the true voice for battered women and advocates. They don't take govermenent mooney , so they can speack up for us. That is not the case for other groups who don't have to worry about money because the goverment supports them. NCADV started out as grass roots, and are still grass rootsin so many ways. They stand up for opression against all groups. They extend a hand to all who need help. They are the true trainers on Domestic Violence. I am proud to have been a board member in the past.

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

It would be the only voice in Washinton DC speaking for domestic violence.

When I was seeking information and assistance from the NCADV, I never felt judged, only supported. I have continued to share the NCADV's work, and continue to volunteer for them in order to raise awareness against domestic violence and abuse. In sharing, I hope that others will find the support they need so as to thrive; in order to live a life of peace, which as individuals we all deserve. With one in three teens a victim there is much work that needs to be done to combat the devastating effects of intimate partner violence, and a cycle that can effect generation after generation. I feel the NCADV is deserving of any recognition that can be bestowed on them, as they continue to change the lives of many caught in violent relationships.

As a long time worker in the domestic violence field I have been a member of NCADV personally and professionally since the early 1980's because NCADV is the national "thought leader" in our work. I have served on the Steering Committee and co-chair of the battered/formerly battered women's task force. I continue to attend NCADV conferences because their conferences are the one place where I am challenged to do better or think differently or more inclusively. Linda A. Osmundson

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

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

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.

We have a calamity in the custody court in their response to domestic violence. The courts do not have the training they need and routinely place children in danger. The NCADV is one of the organizations that gets it and provides enormous support for protective mothers. Anything I have ever requested to help protect battererd mothers and their children has been enthusiastically provided. I wish I could say the same for the courts.

The NCADV is the leading organization in the country working to end men's violence against women. In speaking to women around the world, I have repeatedly heard how fortunate we are in this country to have an organization like this. They have the moral authority to speak on behalf of women partnered with abusers and I particularly appreciate the strong support they are providing for protective mothers. Many people in the public are not aware that there is a crisis in the custody court system that has resulted in thousands of children being sent to live with abusers. The NCADV has made this issue a major priority.

The Great!

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

I have been working with them on the protective mother issue and they have helped in every way I have requested.

I wish they were given the financial resources needed to do the important work of ending domestic violence.

Ways to make it better...

they were given the resources they need to support all the work that is needed

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

the lack of adequate funding, the ignorance of professionals working on cases involving domestic violence (which they often don't recognize), the power and influence of abuser groups.

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

They are doing a remarkable job with the limited resources they have. We are so lucky to have an organization like the NCADV

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.
