ICADV is a feminist organization and what that means to us is that we work to advance the principle that all people have the right to a life free of oppression and violence. We work to foster change in our economic, social, and political systems and bring leadership expertise and best practices to Illinois domestic violence victim service agencies and communities engaged in ending domestic violence.

ICADV allows its employees access to generous benefits including:
