About The Foundation

The FCADV Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) organization established to ensure the long-term financial sustainability of life saving services for domestic violence survivors and their children by supporting Florida’s 42 certified domestic violence centers.  The statistics are haunting, on average three women are murdered each day in our country by a current or former partner. But these are more than just statistics these are families torn apart by violence, children that have lost their mothers, parents forever grieving the death of their daughters, and friends left wondering what could have been done. Each of the 205 domestic violence homicide victims in Florida had a name, a face and a story. And every day in certified domestic violence center’s throughout Florida, dedicated women and men are working to provide services, emergency shelter and programs for domestic violence survivors and their children – they are working to save and change lives. They are not looking away – they are standing up together to say domestic violence must stop. Are you?
