Effectively addressing a serious problem
with programs that make a difference
Every nine seconds in the United States, a woman is assaulted or beaten, and every day, three are killed by husbands or boyfriends. According to the Center for Disease Control, 35.6% of woman and 28.5% of men in the U.S. have experienced rape, physical violence or stalking by a partner. Up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually, and those who have are more likely than their peers to experience medical, behavioral, social and emotional problems, often lasting into adulthood.
At the Center for Advancing Domestic Peace (CADP), we help those who have abused change their attitudes, behaviors, and way of life. So not only do they stop being abusive, but they also learn how to become caring partners, nurturing fathers and responsible members of the community. Our 24-week Beliefs and Skills for Domestic Peace curriculum assists those who have abused in examining their behavior so they eventually learn healthy relationship skills and take responsibility for their actions. Since we began providing services as a not-for-profit in 2003, we have helped more than 2,000 men and women begin to turn their lives around through our programs.
The Center helps people who abuse to stop their domestic violence, take responsibility for their behavior, create healthy relationships and strengthen their communities.
Stopping violence – in our homes and communities – is not easy work.
