National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is an organization founded in 1978 in Washington, D.C. with a goal to “organize our collective power by advancing transformative work, thinking and leadership in communities and individuals who seek to end violence in our lives.” The organization not only focuses on domestic violence in the home, but also society-wide violence and factors which perpetuate violence against women and children alike. Over the years multiple corporate sponsors have joined up with NCADV to provide funding for the organization's services.
