Advocates of Ozaukee is part of a Coordinated Community Response. This body is made up of representatives of all the entities that deal with victims or perpetrators of domestic violence. Its purpose is to work towards coordinating systems to provide safety for the victim and clear and consistent consequences for the abuser. The group meets quarterly at the Justice Center.

Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) committee: The agency's Sexual Violence Services Director and Client Advocacy Director participate in an effort to address child abuse in Ozaukee County. Both are involved in planning the Ozaukee - Washington CAP Luncheon held in April, which is child abuse prevention month.
