Partnership Against Domestic Violence
March 29, 2011
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.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add more staff and sites in the community.
Professional with expertise in this field & I teach students from Georgia State University's School of Social work who are interns at PADVl Work who are placed at PADV for their internship.
