BCS is a key initiative of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) in collaboration with Greater Hartford Legal Aid. The mission of BCS is to promote victim-defined advocacy and responses. We pursue this through analysis, technical assistance, information, and tools that are practical, ready to use and responsive to the complex challenges advocates face.
NRCDV’s mission is to strengthen and transform efforts to end domestic violence. Since 1993, NRCDV has provided a wide range of free, comprehensive, and individualized technical assistance, training, and specialized resource materials and projects designed to enhance current intervention and prevention strategies.
