PCADV works both on the state and local level to ensure people in underserved communities who experience domestic violence get the resources they need. To that end, we provide training and resources for local domestic violence programs that help serve these communities in meaningful ways.
The people we include in our work are people who experience inequality or lack of access to mainstream domestic violence services. As a result, people from these communities experience domestic violence differently than other people, so they may need different types of help from us or our local domestic violence programs.
Underserved communities include:
People who have a disability
People of color
People living in rural areas
People who are from faiths other than Christianity
Since rural communities tend to be interconnected, it’s often more difficult for victims of domestic violence to get help. Through local and statewide programs, we connect these communities with the resources they need.
