The Hendricks County Coalition Against Domestic Violence is dedicated to ending domestic violence through community collaboration with law enforcement agencies, the criminal justice system, and medical and social service agencies. The HCCADV works to improve systems that respond to domestic violence by providing advocacy, community outreach, education, and policy development. The HCCADV works to ensure effective and appropriate services to all victims.
The Hendricks County Coalition Against Domestic Violence is open to all members of our community who embrace the mission of ending domestic violence. Our members include domestic violence advocates, law enforcement, health care professionals, prosecutors, judges, family support agencies and many others who are committed to provide justice for victims and enhance safety for families and communities.
Domestic violence is a crime of power and control most often inflicted on women and children.
Domestic violence in any form is abuse and is unjustifiable.
Each person has dignity and worth and is entitled to a safe environment.
Batterers must be held accountable.
Every person is responsible for their own behavior. Survivors do not cause the abuse.
Children from violent homes are at risk. Violent behavior is a learned response and is often passed down from generation to generation.
All victims have the right to information, support and services to become safe and independent.
A coordinated community response to domestic violence is most effective for intervention and prevention.
