“PADV means a lot to people because it helps them to become aware that they are being abused,” Briana said. “It helps people out of bad situations, find housing and get back on their feet. At PADV, I had the time, support and space I needed to once again learn how special I am and how much I have to offer this world!”

When people think of domestic violence their minds often go to its effects on women.

“Everyone has a large part to play in ending violence. You can talk to your kids; bring a presentation to your faith institution or job. People need to know what a healthy relationship is so that they can use it as a model for what they want to create in their own life,” says Cynthia.

On May 20th Partnership Against Domestic Violence will host its 29th Annual Hearts with Hope Gala. We will gather to wine and dine, celebrate the many lives that have been saved and changed by our work, and to tell the women and children currently living in the darkness of domestic violence that we are here and they’re not alone.
