I have worked with PADV in a number of settings to educate youth about cybersafety and cyberbullying/bullying. I think the work PADV does is fantastic, and their professional staff is excellent!

The survivor-led non-profit works tirelessly to provide a safe haven for women and their families. Their work is nothing short of life-changing and their client-first, empowerment approach to both case management and other services they provide makes a huge difference in the lives of the families they serve as well as in the entire community. Their teen dating violence program is especially influential as it is hugely important in terms of ending the cycle of violence and providing youth with the knowledge and tools to form healthy relationships based on equality and shared power. I have no doubt that the 18,000+ women and children the organization serves each year would agree that PADV provides life-saving and life-altering interventions that are absolutely essential to our communities.

My company has worked with PADV for almost nine years. During that time, they have exceeded our expectations in every way. Someone is always available and responds quickly to problems as they arise. PADV is an organization that we use frequently as a referral source and hear good things from the clients we refer to them. Our particular liaison is always on duty and willing to do the extra steps needed to ensure the safety of the victims with whom they are entrusted.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

personally observing how they conduct outreach in my community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase their budget so as to allow them to conduct even more more outreach and serve more victims.

I have worked with Partnership Against Domestic Violence for the past four years. Laura and the entire staff at PADV return phone calls and e-mails quickly and always find a time to help survivors of domestic violence. This agency is extremely easy to work with. Just recently a survivor contacted me to tell me that her former boyfriend won't leave her alone, has broken in to her home a couple of times and stole her car and took her kids. The police were able to locate her car and children safely. I notified Laura at PADV and she was able to secure her moving assistance so she and her children can move out of Atlanta to live with her mother. This woman can now sleep at night and not worry that this man is going to break into her apartment again. Thanks so much to Laura and PADV.

I have collaborated with PADV multiple times over the past year and a half and the staff there is phenomenal. They are professional and put on fantastic trainings and learning opportunities for those in the field and in the community as well. PADV is a great example of an organization that is more than willing to share their knowledge and expertise to help others and always welcomes the opportunity to learn from others in turn.

I have collaborated with PADV on numerous occasions over the years. Their staff and programs are professional, survivor centered and always reaching for excellence. They partner with many non-profits in the area providing supportive services and increase the options for survivors to choose from, helping them made informed decisions.

PADV has generously helped other organizations in finding creative ways to serve clients who don't have established resources. Survivors in the LGBTQQI population are much better served because of PADV's collaborative efforts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my work with LGBTQQI survivors of intimate partner violence.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing.

I have had the opportunity to partner with many staff members from PADV to help support victims of IPV and consider each of them to be compassionate and dedicated advocates. I appreciate the dedication that PADV has shown toward supporting the efforts to address IPV within the LBGTQQI community. They have been a great leader in this area for the entire state.

As a social work educator, I have been very impressed with PADV- the program, the staff, and their outreach to diverse communities. This organization offers a safe haven, healing and hope for women survivors of intimate partner violence and advocacy partnerships and community prevention programs as well. They are an excellent internships site for social work interns, training future leaders in the field. The staff is always available to give community presentations and engage meaningful dialogue that impacts people in life changing ways.
I'm never at a loss for praise when it comes to PADV!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my social work classes when the Director of Prevention does the IPV 101 training for my classes. I always have students afterwards talk about their own experiences and feel empowered by the information they get. It also inspires students to want to volunteer or work in this area of the field.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add more staff and sites in the community.

I am a man who grew up in an abusive household and watched my mother being treated unfairly on a daily basis. I have been working with adult men in this field for years but I also recognize that there is a need to have dialogue with teens. I attended PADV session at Ga Tech recently and I cannot thank them enough for what they are doing!

organizing teens

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do more events
