- Find Your State or Territory Domestic Violence Coalition
NNEDV represents the 56 U.S. state and territorial coalitions against domestic violence. Domestic violence coalitions serve as state-wide and territory-wide leaders in the efforts to end domestic violence. These organizations connect local domestic violence service providers and are valuable resources for information about services, programs, legislation and policies that support survivors of domestic violence.
- National Organizations & Projects
NNEDV works closely with an array of U.S. national organizations and projects that provide a wealth of resources and assistance regarding domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking.
- Technology Safety
NNEDV's Safety Net Project creates many resources for victims & the agencies that serve them. Check out safety plans, check lists, tips sheets, articles and papers addressing ways that different technologies impact victims of domestic and dating violence, sexual violence and stalking. Topics include data security, spyware, tech savvy teens, online service provision, confidentiality and privacy issues, and more. Several pieces are available in multiple languages (English, Spanish, French, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Somali, Russian). See also, NNEDV's webpage on Internet & Computer Safety.

- Board of Directors E-Learning Module
NNEDV's Coalition Capacity Project, in partnership with the Resource Sharing Project (RSP), created this interactive e-Learning course, to help bolster your work either on or with a non-profit board of directors. This online board orientation program works to provide fundamental training tools for coalitions and local programs to implement with board members, executive directors, and agency staff. This program was designed to be self-guided and highly accessible. The modules can be accessed individually and out of sequence, so as to allow users to modify and tailor the presentation to fit coherently and cleanly to your own specific organization and needs.
