Welcome!


MCADSV offices will be closed until further notice.  MCADSV staff will be working remotely, and will attempt to remain available during our regular business hours (9am – 5pm, Mon-Friday). Please expect slower response times.

We will continue to provide support to our member programs, and share information and resources as it pertains to our mission, supporting survivors, and helping advocates continue to provide life-saving services to survivors of violence.

The Sexual Assault Legal Services (SALS) program, funded under our LAV grant, ends on September 30, 2020. As a result, we are no longer accepting referrals for services for new applicants, effective July 23, 2020. This ensures that survivors will be referred to legal programs that have the capacity to represent their needs throughout the duration of their cases. For immediate legal services, please contact Montana Legal Services Association (MLSA) at 1-800-666-6899, or apply online at https://www.mtlsa.org/apply-for-services/.

If you have any questions or need additional resources and referrals to local programs, please email Ryan, our Specialized Legal Advocate, at rclouse@mcadsv.com for assistance.

MCADSV does not provide direct services. If you need to locate an advocate in your area, please visit  mcadsv.com/about/victim-service-programs-by-region/

All forms of violence are connected – we cannot fight against one form of oppression without fighting against the others. We join our many partners in calling for an end to white supremacy and police violence. We support and stand in solidarity with others throughout the country who are protesting for justice, demanding to be seen and heard. We call upon all white allies, even those who feel distanced from what is happening due to geographic location, to join us in the fight against oppression and white supremacy.

We echo the statements made by the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence. Read here.

We recommend the following resources as a starting point for educating yourself about race and oppression and the current Black Lives Matter Movement:

Showing Up for Racial Justice Website

Me and White Supremacy (Book)

White Fragility (Book)
