Crisis Intervention

DAP Advocacy provides immediate assistance for survivors of domestic abuse 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 violence, adult women survivors of violence, and children and adolescents who have witnessed or experienced abuse. Each team of therapists—the Men’s Team, Women’s Team, and Youth Service’s Team—offer group and individual counseling sessions.

Help for Veterans

CHANGE STEP is DAP’s newest program. Building on the successful curriculum developed 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 community.
