What is FCADV?

In 1977 fourteen shelters in Florida formed a network of battered women’s advocates known as the Refuge Information Network. Several years later, this same organization was incorporated as the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV). FCADV was founded on principles of cooperation and unity among shelters. Today, FCADV serves as the professional association for Florida’s 42 domestic violence centers. The mission of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence is to work towards ending violence through public awareness, policy development, and support for Florida’s domestic violence centers.

FCADV provides leadership, advocacy, education, training, technical assistance, and support to Florida’s certified domestic violence centers, their community partners, and other statewide professionals to improve services, practices and policies related to domestic violence. In addition, the Coalition works toward preventing abuse by developing primary prevention programming that promotes building healthy relationships among youth to stop violence before it starts. FCADV also operates the Florida Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-500-1119), a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week statewide crisis line providing multilingual services, that links callers to their nearest certified domestic violence centers and provides support, advocacy, information and referral services to survivors of domestic violence, their children.
