Partnership Against Domestic Violence
March 31, 2011

PADV is an organization that truly operates to help! When I arrived to Georgia in 2006 I contacted the organization ahead of time to let them know that I would need assistance in getting on my feet. They responded immediately to my needs. Once I obtained a living quarters they assisted with helping me get furniture for my child and I. Food, cookware, clothing, and toys because this was near Christmas.

To me the most effective thing this organzation did for me was the offer the weekly DV Support groups. There was never anything I needed in a timely manner that PADV did not give me. Even if it meant helping pay rent for me for a month or two because I was behind on bills.

Because of the support from this organization I am now in balanced more than ever before. I have learned potential signs of a violent partner through the groups. I have learned that I can make it and that help is out there when needed. Lastly, I have learned that now I can give back. With the support of PADV I was able to get back in school and obtain my biggest goal in Georgia which was my B.A. Degree within four years. They helped my transition be as smooth as possible and now I attribute my success to their labor.

Thank you PADV!
