DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence

June 6th, 2011

For its size, the DCCADV is one of the busiest coalitions in the country. Offering assistance to those in need of comfort, through the dozens of agencies in its network, this coalition works miracles with a very small staff. Per its website, in one day advocates served 407 survivors of Domestic Violence. The need is great and growing.
Today we met with Lynea Woody, Communications and Organizational Advancement Director of the DCCADV. A wonderfully articulate woman, Lynea spoke of some of the hope that her organization offers and the healing which takes place over time. She told us of some of those success stories.
With so many people from foreign countries represented in the population of the District, the language barrier at times presents a unique challenge and is one of the priorities of the DCCADV to reach everyone in need in their region.
