Statement regarding the protest in Charlottesville, VA.

Domestic Abuse Project is committed to ending violence in all its forms. Violence is an epidemic that has long-lasting emotional, psychological, and physical impact. Our mission is to build communities free from violence by providing holistic healing for every member of the family.
The events that took place in Charlottesville over the past week have left us heartbroken and saddened. The white supremacist rally held Saturday, and the subsequent violence that transpired, is a reminder that DAP’s work is more urgent and critical than ever before. [Statement continues here…]

Heal Families from Abuse.

Become a Table Captain!

We need you to help fill the seats at the Luncheon on October 11th! Table captains invite their family, friends, and colleagues to fill a table (or more — tables seat ten individuals).

Would you consider being a table captain this year? We need 70 individuals to say yes! Without Table Captains, the Transforming Families Luncheon would not exist. Learn more here!

We’re Here to Help

Since 1979, Domestic Abuse Project (DAP) has served the Twin Cities community with innovative and effective programming to end the inter-generational cycle of domestic violence. We have made it our mission to build communities free from violence by providing holistic healing for every member of the family. 

Crisis Intervention 

DAP Advocacy provides immediate assistance for survivors of domestic violence and their families. Our advocates help victims develop safety plans, file protective orders, and find safe shelter. They also reach out to all victims of domestic violence identified in Minneapolis police reports to provide ongoing support and make critical resource referrals.

Changing Behavior

DAP Therapy works with adult male perpetrators of domestic violence, adult female survivors of violence, and children and adolescents who have witnessed or experienced abuse. Each team of therapists—the Men’s Team, the Women’s Team, and the Youth Services Team—offers individual and group counseling sessions.

Help for Veterans

CHANGE STEP is DAP’s newest program. Built on the proven curriculum developed in the traditional men’s group, CHANGE STEP incorporates the language and tenor of military culture to better respond to the needs of veterans in our community. CHANGE STEP is now available for organizations to implement in their own communities.

Domestic Abuse Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
