MCADSV researches the extent of violence against women to more effectively reduce its impact and occurrence in the lives of Missouri’s women.
MCADSV remains the only organization in Missouri that collects data and information on all of the services that are provided by domestic and sexual violence programs.
These Monthly Services Reports provide information on the services sought and provided each month by community-based programs that help women, children and men who are victimized by domestic and sexual violence. This information is published yearly.
MCADSV is recognized as Missouri’s designated domestic and sexual violence coalition by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Network to End Domestic Violence, and the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence.
MCADSV conducts annual statewide assessments, Domestic Violence Counts and Sexual Violence Counts, to help MCADSV describe the extent and importance of the work of local providers and are used extensively when MCADSV speaks to legislators and statewide policy leaders to promote programs’ life-changing services.
