PCADV Celebrates Pride Month!

There are lots of different ways to love people & lots of different ways to define yourself. Let’s unite this Pride Month not just to celebrate, but to raise awareness of current issues the LGBTQ+ community is facing, improve the attitudes of society, and encourage inclusiveness.

We understand many men feel uncomfortable talking about domestic violence. Our society puts a lot of pressure on men, too, to “be a man.” At PCADV, we don’t want to put men down. We want to lift men up, celebrate positive role models, and get all men talking about – hear me out – healthy relationships. Are you ready to accept the challenge?

Survivor Story “I was finally in control of my destiny.”

“… When the Judge granted the Protection From Abuse Order (PFA) I wanted to shout out loud. Instead, I thanked her, I smiled, I turned and walked out of the courtroom to the rest of my life. I was finally in control of my destiny.” -Survivor

You can help victims like her regain control of their lives.
