Partnership Against Domestic Violence
March 29, 2011

As a survivor of Domestic Violence I have come to know this organization very dearly. PADV not only helps the survivors with day to day items (a safe place to sleep, food for themselves and their children) but they also go above and beyond by providing the survivors with the resources to overcome the challenges they were so unjustly handed.

PADV is keenly aware that in order to help stop this epidemic the community has to be educated. PADV is at the colleges raising awareness of teen dating violence, they are active in the community with helping abused pets find new homes and they are in the corporate world raising awarenss of what happens when domestic violence goes to the workplace.

I have been a volunteer for eight months and have enjoyed every moment of the experience. Whether I am taking a call from the crisis line, organizing a canned food drive for one of the shelters or giving a hug to a survivor.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

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

love to see this organization grow and spread so much awareness that our world wouldn't have a need for refuge from abusers.
