​​​​​​​​​Our Mission

In 2013, the City of Phoenix created the​ "Roadmap to Excellence: making the City of Phoenix a National Leader in Preventing and Ending Domestic Violence" along with an awareness campaign called "Paint Phoenix Purple". In addition to activities that directly impact survivors, the​​ initiative also emphasizes having important conversations to prevent and end domestic violence.​​​​​ ​

If you are being abused, it is important to know that you've done nothing to d​eserve abuse. Leaving can be difficult but it is not impossible.  You can change your circumstance today!
