Rating: 5

I have worked for years with the staff from PADV. They set the standard for all domestic violence agencies in Georgia. Their work is professional to the highest standard and their care and support for survivors is beyond compare. The staff work very hard in very difficult jobs. They are constantly striving to find innovative and compassionate ways to support those affected by intimate partner violence. I cannot say enough about this organization or the people who make it run. They set the standard within the state for serving survivors.
