JCADA's mission is to support victims of intimate partner violence to become empowered and live safely; educate the community about intimate partner violence and the appropriate responses; and prevent future generations from experiencing intimate partner violence.

. . . 

JCADA's vision is to create a world free from intimate partner violence and upend power structures that perpetuate the continuation of that violence.

. . . 


In 1999, the Washington Jewish Week (WJW) wrote about the prevalence of domestic abuse in the Greater Washington Jewish community and the lack of resources to help victims. In response, community members convened to address this gap. They reviewed models from around the country and established JCADA the following year to provide holistic services for victims of domestic and dating abuse in the Greater Washington area. The goal was to deliver comprehensive services to victims while empowering future generations to develop healthy relationships.


Today, JCADA is committed to providing high-quality services to all residents of the Greater Washington DC community, without regard to race, national origin, ability, background, faith, gender, or sexual orientation.

JCADA could not provide its life-saving support services or empower so many victims and survivors of intimate partner violence without help from our community partners. 

We want to thank our many partners in the Greater Washington DC Area that have shown a commitment to our mission. Your support and contributions enable us to continue to advocate on behalf of victims and survivors of intimate partner violence.

In addition, JCADA is proud to be a partner agency of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
