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.

As the Executive Director of a non-profit that works to provide shelter and support services to victims of domestic violence I can say that the support of NCADV has been essential in helping me understand what is happening on a national level. I am so appreciative of the work that the National Coalition is doing every day because small local programs simply do not have the time or resources to accomplish this work on their own. The Director Rita Smith is brilliant. She has such a comprehensive understanding of family violence and the history of the movement to end family violence. NCADV has provided the technical assistance that we have needed to develop a sustainable model that is informed by the needs of the individuals we serve. By supporting NCADV you will support the collaborative effort of so many individuals and groups that are working to provide services and end violence.

The work of NCADV is critical to ensuring that local survivors and those advocates assisting them have the resources they need to be successful. The staff at NCADV has consistently been responsive and thoughtful to our local program staff and volunteers, whether its helping to broker a participant to a local program or providing strategic and technical assistance, they have gone above and beyond to be there when needed. Thanks NCADV for the timely, relevant and key role you play in concert with other organizations to work toward ending family violence. We couldn't do this work without you.

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.
