On behalf of our staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors, the Center for Advancing Domestic Peace wishes to thank you for your interest in our work. We are excited and encouraged by the progress we have made in the our first ten years, including developent of strengths-based intervention and our innovative case management program.

Through the Community Outreach and Education program, the Center allies with community leaders and stakeholders, survivors of domestic violence, and women and men committed to non-violence and mutually respectful intimate relationships.
The Center helps people who abuse to stop their domestic violence,
take responsibility for their behavior,

and strengthen their community.
The Center for Advancing Domestic Peace, has partnered with a coalition of 9 Chicago area domestic violence agencies, and 2 affiliate members to help Run Domestic Violence Out of Town as an approved charity team for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on October 11, 2015.
In preparation for the “big day,” the Run DV Out of Town campaign has already recruited an impressive group of 50 runners who have been hard at work, training and soliciting sponsors for their collective fundraising effort. The money raised will go to support key services for those affected by domestic violence, from 24-hour crisis lines and shelter to counseling and community prevention programs. But, above all, the team’s strong presence at the marathon will send a message loud and clear that everyone has a role in preventing domestic violence – everyone can do something to help.
