The Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence (KCADV) provides a strong, statewide voice on behalf of domestic violence survivors and their children. KCADV administers $9.5 million in state and federal funds to its 15 member programs, runs a Certification Program for domestic violence program staff including, and operates an Economic Empowerment Program serving survivors across the state. KCADV also advocates on domestic violence-related issues at the state and federal levels, coordinates an annual conference with the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault programs, and provides resources, training, and technical assistance to its member programs.
Members of KCADV’s AmeriCorps State program, the Economic Empowerment Corps (EEC), commit to one year of direct service, providing financial education for survivors of domestic violence and their children.
Additionally, through KCADV’s partnership with Homes for All Corps (another Impact Suite member), KCADV has AmeriCorps VISTA members providing indirect services at KCADV and several KCADV programs. VISTA members develop and implement economic empowerment programming to increase access for survivors and improve financial literacy.
We’re honored to help KCADV’s AmeriCorps program staff members, AmeriCorps members, and partners focus far more of their energy on the organization’s essential programming.
