New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence (NJCEDV)

Known as the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women (NJCBW) for nearly 40 years, we now celebrate a new name and enhanced mission: to provide leadership, support and resources on the prevention of domestic violence for all victims in New Jersey through advocacy, education and training, technical assistance and community awareness.
Welcome to our new, responsive website.

We are Preventing

The New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence (NJCEDV) is a statewide coalition of 30 domestic violence programs and concerned individuals whose purpose and mission is to end domestic violence in New Jersey. NJCEDV performs its work through advocacy for survivors of domestic violence; collaboration with state agencies and its member programs; education and training; and technical assistance for its members and the community. Get help here.

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 Work

 

Our Featured Projects

 

Peace, a Learned Solution (PALS)

PALS is a trauma informed program for child witnesses of domestic violence.  The treatment program model uses creative arts therapies for children (primarily aged three to twelve), who have been exposed to domestic violence. Learn more.

Women of Color Task Force

The Women of Color Task Force is made up of domestic violence advocates and community members to eliminate barriers to inclusion and access by establishing equitable services for all victims, especially those who have been traditionally underserved. Learn more.

Deaf Advocacy Project

Women with disabilities experience higher rates of domestic violence than any other groups of women, with some estimates as high as 85%. Physical and attitudinal barriers prevent women with disabilities and Deaf women from being able to access services. Learn more.

Financial Empowerment Program

Economic Abuse is a hidden form of domestic violence. 94-99% of survivors of domestic violence experience some form of economic abuse. NJCEDV has partnered with Allstate to launch free virtual supportive services. For more information or to enroll. Learn more.

Volunteer Opportunity

Domestic Violence Response Teams
(DVRT)

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.
