About Us

NYC Domestic Violence Inc., is a New York city based non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose main objective is to provide information and resources to victims of intimate partner abuse and their children, we are committed to the belief that safety from violence and freedom from fear are universal rights.

We have a singular ambition that everyone that approaches us should benefit from our association in ways that will enhance their lives.

NYC Domestic Violence INC. challenge the negative myths surrounding domestic violence. We also reach out to abused women and children, breaking their isolation and helping them to access life-saving support – as well as raising public awareness of domestic violence against women’s and girls.

We are here to heal, educate, and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic  violence and child abuse, and to shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues.  While we understand that our vision may not be achievable in our lifetimes, we firmly believe that violence and abuse is preventable.

Founded in May 2015 as a grassroots organization NYC Domestic Violence INC. challenges social attitudes towards women and champions gender equality in its work to prevent violence in the future. We believe that changing attitudes is not just about talk without action,and we believe it is the only way we will end domestic violence.  We see our prevention work as a service in its own right.
