We help our community respond to domestic violence by creating opportunities to learn about effective individual and institutional responses to survivors, batterers and children who experience domestic violence.
We can prevent domestic violence by promoting healthy, equitable relationships. We help our community think about the conversation related to domestic violence through the lens of promoting healthy, equitable relationships.
We create opportunities for people who care about these issues to connect with each other and with other organizations promoting this work.
MCEDSV has partnered with MI Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian, Gay and Queer Survivors of Abuse to offer an exceptional training opportunity for community members and partners. The training is designed for people who have knowledge about domestic and sexual violence, but would like a better understanding and working knowledge about LGBTQ+ people, communities and our experiences of partner abuse and sexual violence.

What does the Macomb Community Domestic Violence Council do?
At the MCDVC, we believe in giving people the tools they need to create healthy, safe and fair relationships within their circle of friends, family and co-workers. We use meetings, trainings, and workgroups to create a coordinated community response to domestic violence and to offer opportunities for professional discourse and networking.
Our Mission is to develop and sustain a coordinated, broad based community response to domestic violence, to use all available community resources to eliminate domestic violence, and to support a comprehensive network of direct interventions and services for victims.
