Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence

The Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV) does not provide direct services to victims of domestic violence. FCADV provides leadership, advocacy, education, training, technical assistance, public policy and development, and support to domestic violence center programs. They promote statewide communication on the issues of domestic violence and convene statewide professional trainings and conferences. They also have a project (the Clearinghouse Project) that provides legal assistance to victims but referrals are only accepted through local domestic violence programs.
