Directory Help for Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence

Post by thief of dreams » Sat May 22, 2004 3:30 am

To all of you who know first hand about abuse of any kind, my heart goes out to you. Remember that you are not alone, and that no matter what you may have been told, had beaten into you, you are NOT at fault. The fault lies with the abuser, always.

To those of you who are or feel you may possibly be abusers, please seek assistance. The damage you do can ruin a person's life forever, perhaps even end it. The after effects of abuse last a lifetime. I am still young so, in theory at least, I will be dealing with my past for 50 or 60 years. Think about that before you act. More and more people are coming forward with their stories of abuse and survival. That doesn't, however, mean that more and more abusers are being either sent to prison or made to get psychological help. Most abusers get away with their crimes. It is up to all of us to end this self perpetuating sickness. I plan on doing my part, what about you?

Leave immediately if you or your children are in danger!
Call a crisis hotline or the National Domestic Violence Hotline 800-799-SAFE or TDD 800-787-3224 (write this number down on a piece of paper and place it in your purse or wallet RIGHT NOW),
They are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in English, Spanish, and other languages. It can give you the phone numbers of local hotlines and other resources.

Don't ignore it or wait for it to go away. It won't go away.
Don't keep it to yourself. Get help. Talk with someone: a family member, friend, colleague, or even a member of the Poetry Pages.
If you've been hurt, get medical attention and call the police. Abuse is a crime. The police can help you find information about shelters. Do not wait for it to end or make excuses for the abuser.
Make plans for what you will do if you're attacked again.
When you decide to leave, choose a place to go and set aside some money. Put important papers - marriage license, birth certificates, checkbook, and irreplaceable papers and items - in a place where you can get them quickly.

Mission statement:
NCADV is dedicated to the empowerment of battered women and their children and therefore is committed to the elimination of personal and societal violence in the lives of battered women and their children. NCADV believes violence against women and children results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships, and from societal abuse of power and domination in the forms of sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, anti-Semitism, able-bodyism, ageism and other oppressions. NCADV recognizes that the abuses of power in society foster battering by perpetuating conditions which condone violence against women and children. Therefore, it is the mission of NCADV to work for major societal changes necessary to eliminate both personal and societal violence against all women and children. NCADV’s work includes coalition building at the local, state, regional and national levels; support for the provision of community-based, non-violent alternatives - such as safe home and shelter programs - for battered women and their children; public education and technical assistance; policy development and innovative legislation; focus on the leadership of NCADV’s caucuses and task forces developed to represent the concerns of organizationally under represented groups; and efforts to eradicate social conditions which contribute to violence against women and children.

Mission statement:
DVRP's mission is to address and prevent domestic violence in Asian/Pacific Islander (A/PI) communities in the DC area. DVRP's programs and activities are guided by the 4-stage vision of the organization's development that its first Board of Directors created in 1996. DVRP's 4-stage vision is as follows: Analyze the local service area's needs with a needs assessment and make initial contacts with local community groups and service providers through community dialogues Begin to provide direct services to A/PI battered women locally; work collaboratively with service providers that already serve A/PI communities to strengthen and enhance their responses and services; conduct community education campaign. Develop longer-term expanded support services provided by DVRP; continue collaborative efforts with local service providers. Open a one-stop service center for battered A/PI women and their children. In 1998, through grants from The Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation and the Government of the District of Columbia's Department of Human Services, DVRP transitioned into the second stage of its vision with the hiring of its first paid staff -- a part-time women's advocate -- to provide direct services to A/PI battered women and the implementation of a public awareness and education campaign.
