I have worked with PADV on the Domestic Violence TASK Force, they have been there to offer support and tools in the fight against domestic violence. PADV is a great resource in the community.

PADV goes out of their way not only to help victims of domestic violence, but to save lives of those who have not yet seeked help against their attacker. Recently, Ms. Barton spoke at my University for a Take Back The Night campaign. One of the most important things she did was have everyone put PADV's phone number in their phones. I thought this was so important as many victims do not know where to seek help. She gave them the answer and hopefully the courage to call. - Heather

I've had the privilege of volunteering with the organization, attending trainings held by its passionate staff, and collaborating professionally with the team at PADV. Every staff person's passion and dedication is evident in everything they do, and the women of Atlanta would be worse off if not for PADV.

As a woman who was beaten and brutalized from 1970-1974 before becoming strong enough and wise enough (and weary enough) to figure out how to escape--with a ten-year old child--I strongly endorse PADV! How I wish I had known of an organization back then that would have been there for me with practical and emotional support such as is now provided by PADV. As a current member of Atlanta Domestic Violence Group, I know that their work is invaluable. It is my hope that my recommendation will help to allow PADV to be recognized on the Great Nonprofits Top-Rated Women's Nonprofits List. Thank you.
