I have worked with PADV in a number of settings to educate youth about cybersafety and cyberbullying/bullying. I think the work PADV does is fantastic, and their professional staff is excellent!
The survivor-led non-profit works tirelessly to provide a safe haven for women and their families. Their work is nothing short of life-changing and their client-first, empowerment approach to both case management and other services they provide makes a huge difference in the lives of the families they serve as well as in the entire community. Their teen dating violence program is especially influential as it is hugely important in terms of ending the cycle of violence and providing youth with the knowledge and tools to form healthy relationships based on equality and shared power. I have no doubt that the 18,000+ women and children the organization serves each year would agree that PADV provides life-saving and life-altering interventions that are absolutely essential to our communities.
My company has worked with PADV for almost nine years. During that time, they have exceeded our expectations in every way. Someone is always available and responds quickly to problems as they arise. PADV is an organization that we use frequently as a referral source and hear good things from the clients we refer to them. Our particular liaison is always on duty and willing to do the extra steps needed to ensure the safety of the victims with whom they are entrusted.

I have worked with Partnership Against Domestic Violence for the past four years. Laura and the entire staff at PADV return phone calls and e-mails quickly and always find a time to help survivors of domestic violence. This agency is extremely easy to work with. Just recently a survivor contacted me to tell me that her former boyfriend won't leave her alone, has broken in to her home a couple of times and stole her car and took her kids. The police were able to locate her car and children safely. I notified Laura at PADV and she was able to secure her moving assistance so she and her children can move out of Atlanta to live with her mother. This woman can now sleep at night and not worry that this man is going to break into her apartment again. Thanks so much to Laura and PADV.
I have collaborated with PADV multiple times over the past year and a half and the staff there is phenomenal. They are professional and put on fantastic trainings and learning opportunities for those in the field and in the community as well. PADV is a great example of an organization that is more than willing to share their knowledge and expertise to help others and always welcomes the opportunity to learn from others in turn.
I have collaborated with PADV on numerous occasions over the years. Their staff and programs are professional, survivor centered and always reaching for excellence. They partner with many non-profits in the area providing supportive services and increase the options for survivors to choose from, helping them made informed decisions.
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.
I have worked with staff from PADV for more than five years now. They are tireless advocates for survivors. PADV works relentlessly to ensure that domestic violence survivors and their friends and family have the support they need to heal. I want to personally thank everyone I know at PADV for the difficult jobs they do every day. They make my community a better place.
PADV has generously helped other organizations in finding creative ways to serve clients who don't have established resources. Survivors in the LGBTQQI population are much better served because of PADV's collaborative efforts.
I have had the opportunity to partner with many staff members from PADV to help support victims of IPV and consider each of them to be compassionate and dedicated advocates. I appreciate the dedication that PADV has shown toward supporting the efforts to address IPV within the LBGTQQI community. They have been a great leader in this area for the entire state.
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 am a man who grew up in an abusive household and watched my mother being treated unfairly on a daily basis. I have been working with adult men in this field for years but I also recognize that there is a need to have dialogue with teens. I attended PADV session at Ga Tech recently and I cannot thank them enough for what they are doing!
LOVE PADV. I first met this group in June 2006 and have had a working relationship with them ever since. They will often come to our Ally, Safe Sister and Advocate Training and assist with various events too. They have been honored through a fund raising event on campus, as well as a collaborator on several grants!
PADV has proven to be a reliable community partner in the domestic violence community time after time. Whenever we have a client in need of assistance, PADV is only one call away. They tirelessly educate the community on domestic violence, teen dating violence, and IPV in the LGBTQQI community. They are present at every local task force and interagency effort that happens in the metro Atlanta area. Their professionalism and leadership are commendable.
