Consider the following:

  • Domestic violence affects your workforce: 1 in 5 employees in America is a victim of domestic violence.
  • Domestic violence comes at a high price: The cost to employers is $5.1 billion nationwide each year, which includes health care costs, lost workdays, and lower levels of productivity.
  • Your workers, customers, and community care about this issue: 80% of Americans think more domestic violence services are necessary.

The Center Against Domestic Violence was the first organization in New York and among the first in the country dedicated to combating domestic abuse. Through our groundbreaking education programs for young people, we do more than just treat the problem. We work everyday to cultivate a society free from abuse.
