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.
In our efforts to practice #socialdistancing, the Sexual Assault Legal Services (SALS) program is now conducting remote advocacy for survivors! We are still processing referrals for services, providing safety planning, and contracting with attorneys across the state for civil legal services. If you are an advocate working with a survivor that needs legal assistance, or a survivor interested in our services, please email Ryan, our Specialized Legal Advocate, at email@example.com for more info.
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/
MCADSV is currently accepting responses to our Request For Proposal (RFP) for Rebranding/Logo and Website Design. Please find the RFP at this link: 2020 Design Request for Proposal

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:
