REAL IMPACT
With your support,17 domesticviolence and cultural competencytrainingswere facilitated fordomestic violence serviceproviders and staff at Asian/ Pacific Islander community basedorganizations.
REAL IMPACT
159 survivors of domestic violence and sexual assaultand90childrenreceived lifesaving services through DVRP’s SurvivorServices Program: obtaining protection orders, finding safe havenin shelters, building an effective safety plan and finding a sense ofcommunity again.The majority of these survivors would not have reached out forhelp without culturally and linguistically specific services.
“I have trust in my advocate, trust in DVRP’s confidentiality and I feel safe having a safety [plan].” 
 
In 1995, a diverse group of Asian/Pacific Islander (A/PI) women came together to discuss the issue ofdomestic violence in their communities and the resources available to assist survivors. These women, theFounders of the Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project (DVRP), discovered that over500 abused women reaching out for help were unable to access culturally and linguistically appropriateservices necessary for their unique needs.In response to the lack of services, the Founders created the A/PI Domestic Violence Resource Project(DVRP) to provide services to all A/PI survivors living in the Washington, DC metropolitan area (includingnorthern Virginia and Maryland) and to raise awareness about the problem of domestic violence within thelarger community.We continued to fulfill this mission in 2012. Now, more than ever, survivors are reaching out for help.Through the work of staff, advocates and board members, we have been working to bring safety to thesecourageous individuals while empowering them to regain control of their lives.
