Annual Reports 

The year 2019 saw amazing progress in Louisiana’s efforts to end domestic violence. We conducted a lengthy and detailed process of assessing unmet needs of survivors in our state, we revitalized and reinvented our coalition’s caucus structure, and we overhauled and reinstated our state’s quality assurance process for domestic violence programs. The Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s (LCADV) work has been innovative, groundbreaking, and impactful. Click Annual Report 2019 to read about our 2019 achievements.
