We all have a part to play in ending domestic violence. But there is no need to act alone.
MCEDV and our member resource centers offer training, consultation, and technical assistance to support communities in responding to abuse.

From general training and awareness building around the issue to highly specialized technical assistance, we work to foster a coordinated community response to domestic abuse—one that promotes both safety for victims, and accountability for abusers.
