Transforming Families Luncheon





DAP will be closed Monday July 9th through Friday July 13th. There will be no groups or appointments during this time.

We recognize the need to care for ourselves in order to provide quality services to our clients. In recognition of our teachings of self-care practices, DAP will be closing for one week in order to gather as a staff and obtain training, have discussions, and engage in self-care activities that we will then be able to bring into our work with all of you. During this period of time, if you are in crisis or need of services, the following agencies are prepared to assist you:

Day One 1-866-223-1111

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.
