Supporting critical thinking, learning and victim-defined advocacy...


BCS is a key initiative of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV) in collaboration with Greater Hartford Legal Aid. Our mission 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.




It is the NRCDV’s mission to strengthen and transform efforts to end domestic violence. Since 1993, we have 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.




Greater Hartford Legal Aid is a not-for-profit law firm that advocates for equal justice for poor people. Its attorneys protect legal rights and use the law to address the effects and root causes of poverty. Staff works with the community to identify and address current issues. GHLA’s domestic violence advocacy began in 1979. It is recognized as a state and national leader on family violence and violence against women.
