HELP DAP SHRINK DINOSAURS
Brittany came to DAP feeling her dad’s rage consumed her life. The sand tray scene that she created in her DAP therapy session depicted that rage as a T-Rex towering over her home. At the end of her time with DAP, that dinosaur was smaller, off to the side and not so scary. That’s what we do at DAP – we shrink dinosaurs. Your donation allows us to do what we do best…end domestic abuse.
At Domestic Abuse Project,
we know how to end the cycle of abuse.
We seek to permanently break the inter-generational cycle of family violence by leading societal change and by providing men, women and children with essential tools needed to eliminate violence in their lives.
DAP Advocacy supports victims as they navigate the legal system, and connects them to resources a victim often needs in their moments of crisis.
DAP Therapy is for men, women and children who are at a place in their lives when they can make real changes in their behaviors. In 1979, DAP was the first organization in MN to offer a therapy program for men who use abuse in their intimate relationships. Since then, DAP has worked to not only heal but to prevent – as our work with children is truly preventative. Without intervention, children who witness domestic violence are 64% more likely to grow up to be abusers or victims.
True to Minnesota’s reputation as a leader in the movement to end domestic abuse, the Twin Cities is lucky to have so many small, mid-size and large businesses that care about their customers and the community, enough to get involved.
