L.I. Against Domestic Violence provides a range of services that help over 14,000 Long Island adults and children each year to escape from abusive relationships and build new lives. Founded in 1976, we are a regional pioneer and leader in empowering victims and survivors, providing them with shelter and support, and working with law enforcement and the community to prevent abuse.
A source for prevention, support,and healing for L.I. abuse victims since 1976
In 1976, we were incorporated as the Long Island Woman's Coalition, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. We were among the first to establish a 24-hour crisis hotline in our area. Volunteers opened their homes and hearts by providing "safe houses" and support services for victims.
In 1983, funding was secured to open the Safe Harbor shelter, the first shelter in Suffolk County specifically for victims of domestic violence. Safe Harbor provides safety, shelter and core services to help victims flee abuse, develop an action plan and find permanent housing, all in a supportive environment.
