Domestic Abuse Project

Focus Area: Early Childhood

Grant Amount: $15,000

Located in Minneapolis. DAP provides programming to end the inter-generational cycle of domestic violence, working with all affected members of the family to stop domestic violence as it occurs and prevent it in the future. It is the only agency in the Twin Cities that offers trauma-informed therapy for all family members affected by family violence.

Grant supports expansion of DAP’s early childhood program to include Circles of Security (COS) therapy groups. COS is an evidence-based, trauma-informed relationship-based parenting program that can help support families that are on the wait list for DAP’s Child-Parent Psychotherapy services.
