We are Unified
The Coalition stands united in its efforts to provide safety and support to victims and survivors of domestic violence, to hold offenders accountable, and to engage community-based systems to enhance their response to domestic violence and to develop and implement programs that promote the prevention of domestic violence.
We are Inclusive
Domestic Violence is not confined to one race, class, education level, socio economic status, gender, sexual orientation, age, nation of origin, etc. Through its Inclusion and Access Initiative, NJCEDV strives to work with member organizations and community partners to ensure that programs and services are inclusive and accessible to individuals from all backgrounds and communities.
Our Featured Projects
Domestic Violence Response Teams
Teams are composed of trained citizens who respond to the police departments on an “on-call” basis. All volunteers go through a rigorous screening process followed by an intensive 40-hours of training. Upon successful completion of the training, volunteers are able to speak to victims in a confidential nature. Additionally, individual supervision is provided to volunteers within 24-hours of their call-out.
