Keep Summer Safe!
 
Thank you for joining us as we launch our second e-fundraiser,  “Keep Summer Safe.”  We look forward to getting to know the people who have supported KDVA’s work in the past and will help us in the future. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you about KDVA.
 
What is KDVA?
The Kentucky Domestic Violence Association was founded in 1981 by the staff of the six existing domestic violence shelters. KDVA was formed to support the shelters by providing information and technical assistance, creating an avenue for resource sharing, coordinating services, and collectively advocating on behalf of victims of domestic violence and their children.
 
Today, the Association contracts with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to provide domestic violence services statewide through its fifteen regional member programs (shelters). In addition, KDVA offers training and technical assistance to member programs and other organizations providing services to victims of domestic violence and houses a number of specialized projects that we will be highlighting as part of our "Keep Summer Safe" campaign. It is your contribution that will help us keep women, children, and families safe.
 
Some of KDVA’s Current Projects
  • An Economic Justice Project designed to help survivors of domestic violence reach financial independence through financial education and asset-building tools.
  • An Immigration Project crafted to ensure that our member programs and related partner agencies can respond successfully when immigrant victims of domestic violence seek services.
  •  Women and Incarceration Project intended to explore the risk of incarceration for female victims of domestic violence and help support incarcerated battered women.
  • Project SAFE – a project established to work with state-level technical assistance providers to raise awareness, improve accessibility, and train providers about sexual assault and domestic violence among individuals with disabilities.
  • Prevention Project designed to explore dating violence among teens and prevention strategies that can be incorporated into KDVA’s efforts to end violence against women.
  • Training Institute focused on providing expert training to KDVA member program staff and related professionals.  Workshops offer a variety of Board-approved CEUs. 
KDVA works hard to ensure the accessibility of domestic violence services, but we need your help.  This summer, we look forward to sharing information about our work with you.  You can help us now by making a financial contribution to the Kentucky Domestic Violence Association.  Your donation will help us continue to craft creative, effective, and inclusive responses to domestic violence in the Commonwealth.  Thank you for supporting KDVA.
