For 18 years, JCADA has educated the Greater Washington community about power-based violence, while providing life-changing support to more than 1,800 survivors of trauma and abuse. Programs are free, culturally- and faith-sensitive, and available to all – regardless of faith, race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, or ethnicity. Wraparound services (a confidential helpline, counseling and therapy, safety planning) and legal support, empower victims to live safely. An education program equips community members, particularly lay leaders, with the knowledge and tools to spot the warning signs of abuse within their networks and respond appropriately. And AWARE, JCADA’s prevention initiative, gives youth the language and skills to help themselves or assist a friend who may be affected by abuse – breaking the cycle of violence for future generations. Today, more victims are coming forward than ever before: let’s make sure their voices are heard.
