Healing lives broken by family violence.

At Domestic Abuse Project,
we know how to end the cycle of abuse.

We seek to permanently break the inter-generational cycle of family violence by leading societal change and by providing men, women and children with essential tools needed to eliminate violence in their lives.

DAP Advocacy supports victims as they navigate the legal system, and connects them to resources a victim often needs in their moments of crisis.

DAP Therapy is for men, women and children who are at a place in their lives when they can make real changes in their behaviors.  In 1979, DAP was the first organization in MN to offer a therapy program for men who use abuse in their intimate relationships.  Since then, DAP has worked to not only heal but to prevent – as our work with children is truly preventative.  Without intervention, children who witness domestic violence are 64% more likely to grow up to be abusers or victims.
