MCADSV offices will be closed to the public 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.
Dating violence is more common than people think, especially among teens and young adults: one in three teens in the US will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults, and nearly half (43%) of college women report experiencing violent or abusive dating behaviors.
Every February, young people and their loved ones join together across the country for a national effort to raise awareness about the issue of teen dating violence through Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM). This annual, month-long push focuses on advocacy and education to stop dating abuse before it starts.

As of September 30, 2020, the federal grant funding the Sexual Assault Legal Services (SALS) has ended; as such, SALS is no longer in operation. If you are a former client of SALS and have questions regarding its closure or your previous case with SALS, please contact Kim at 406-443-7794, x111.
