The Network is a collaborative membership organization dedicated to improving the lives of those impacted by domestic violence through education, public policy and advocacy, and the connection of community members to direct service providers.

The Network's Centralized Training Institute: The primary focus of CTI training is to prepare participants to effectively respond to and deliver quality services to victims of domestic violence and their children in an ethical and culturally appropriate manner. CTI provides training to domestic violence advocates, allied professionals, and the Chicagoland community.

The Network's Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline: The State of Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline is a 24/7, toll-free, confidential hotline. It is a collaborative program between the city’s Division of Domestic Violence and the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network. Created in 1998, the Hotline has handled over 300,000 toll-free calls in confidence. It provides information and assistance including referrals to a wide variety of domestic violence related providers throughout the State of Illinois. It is here to help you. You are not alone.
The Network's Policy and Advocacy Agenda: In an effort to meet the needs of The Network’s membership, an advocacy agenda is created by its members every year. The Network’s members participate in differing committees to reach the agenda goals set out by the full membership. These goals focus on community engagement, innovative and collaborative programming, and researching models for developing stronger collaboration across and among providers in Chicagoland.
