Private, nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations and programs that are licensed by the New York State Office for Children and Family Services (OCFS) or have a current contract with a Department of Social Services in New York State to provide domestic violence services, either residential or nonresidential, and who adhere to the Mission, Vision and Philosophy of NYSCADV.
All Domestic Violence Service Provider Members must support NYSCADV’s mission by providing services to individuals affected by intimate partner violence and their families. These services are free, confidential, and available to all survivors regardless of age, race, gender, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability or financial status.
