Review for ASIAN-PACIFIC ISLANDER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESOURCE PROJECT, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I served on DVRP's board from 2008-10 and I continue to stay in touch with the organization. It has pulled off an impressive feat by not only remaining in existence when other DV orgs in the area folded, but thriving as it charges ahead with new and redefined services. Personally, I am thrilled to see that DVRP recently installed an executive director after going for years without one! And they are also increasing the staff size, which will ensure the organization's services reach more people than ever. I look forward to celebrating many more successes to come, and will continue supporting this fantastic organization.

Review for ASIAN-PACIFIC ISLANDER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESOURCE PROJECT, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

DVRP is one of the only organizations I've seen that accomplishes so much on such a lean staffing model. The combination of staff, board, advocates, and volunteers is extremely dedicated. The two years I served on the board were incredibly difficult with budget cuts and their cascading effects, but it was also inspiring to see how we all pulled together to ensure DVRP's critical services would continue. I learned a ton from this experience and also made wonderful friends along the way. Even after my board term ended, there were many opportunities to witness the immense efforts put in by the newer folks involved with DVRP. I still attend events and support this wonderful organization.
