JCADA would like to take a moment to send it​s​ deepest condolences to the friends and family of Jaelynn Willey, who was taken off of life support last night. Her death comes after the tragic shooting at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County​, Maryland​. To read our full statement, please visit the JCADA blog. The link can be found below.

Jaelynn and the shooter were reported to have ​recently been in some type of​ relationship. Unfortunately, this is a reality that JCADA​ knows all too well - that abusive relationships can and sometimes do turn deadly. If you or someone you know is ​experiencing power-based violence, be it domestic violence, teen dating violence, sexual assault, ​or stalking ​please call JCADA's free and confidential helpline at 1-877-88-JCADA(52232). JCADA is committed to providing high-quality services to all residents of the Greater Washington DC community​,​ 14 years of age and older​,​ without regard to race, national origin, background, ability, faith, gender or sexual orientation. We are here to help​ survivors as well as their family and friends​.

Are you looking for a new way to give back? Well you're in luck! JCADA is currently looking to start a new knitting and mindfulness workshop for its clients, but is short about 10 pairs of knitting needles. Below is a link to the specific needles needed for this workshop. If you are interested in generously providing these needles, please contact Shana Brouder at shana@jcada.org or simply call 301-315-8040 and she can walk you through the process.

Honored to have Legal Program Director Spencer Cantrell testifying on behalf of Senate Bill 1036 in the Maryland General Assembly. This bill will help keep firearms out of the hands of domestic abusers, which will help our clients exponentially.
