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.
