ICADV has begun its satellite attorney program to help programs direct emergency legal help to survivors with an emergency legal issue (such as a protection order where the offending party is represented by counsel). We can refer a local or regional attorney who can come and assist. ICADV will pick up their tab on a modest means level AND pay the costs of travel for the survivor.
To participate, a program must first document each case in a referral form. Click here for the referral packet of information. With that, we can refer you to an attorney for assistance.
For questions or more information, email Legal Counsel Kerry Hyatt Bennett.

ICADV was selected in October as one of more than 160 participating nonprofits across the country to be a part of the Purple Purse Challenge, which raises funds for nonprofits serving domestic violence victims. ICADV was chosen for its commitment to providing financial empowerment services to domestic violence survivors. During the month (Domestic Violence Awareness Month), ICADV raised $1,000 and received a “bonus” gift from the Foundation for another $1,000. Thanks to all who participated!
