Jennifer Ann's Group

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: Preventing teen dating violence through awareness, education, and advocacy (+video games) in memory of Jennifer Ann Crecente
  • History:
    Good, decent people that want to help out a friend are sometimes murdered in cold blood.

    And the bogeyman isn't always under the bed.

    Sometimes he's the kid that lives down the street.

    Our organization is going to do everything that it can to ensure that no other parent has to be awakened in the middle of the night by friends pounding on the door. No more groggy-eyed astonishment. No more shocked out-of-body emptiness.

    No more realization that nothing will ever be the same again. Nothing.

    We will educate young people about danger signs. About warning signals. About indications that they are in above their heads and not immortal.

    And then we'll point them in the right direction - toward the many groups that offer assistance, counseling and protection. We will not rest until every young person has been educated about an epidemic that impacts over 20% of our teenage population*.

    Ignorance will not be an excuse. We won't stop until this knowledge is as fundamental as looking both ways when you cross the street.

    I can't bring my baby back. Jennifer is gone, and as powerless as I may be about that, I refuse to allow this to continue unabated. Please join our forum on Teen Dating Violence so that you can join in conversations about this worldwide problem. We are a young organization but have ambition, passion and an energy borne of desperation.

    Please keep Jennifer in your hearts and prayers. I sincerely wish you could have known her.">Jennifer Ann Crecente was a high school honors student that was murdered by an ex-boyfriend on February 15, 2006. Our group w...(read more)

    The National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women is the first and only national organization that focuses exclusively on battered women charged with crimes. Over the years, the National Clearinghouse has been instrumental in increasing public awareness about the many complex issues facing battered women who end up charged with crimes and in building alliances among national, state-wide, and local organizations and countless individuals to work to stem the tide of injustices facing battered women defendants and incarcerated battered women.

    In addition to providing individualized technical assistance, National Clearinghouse staff conduct training seminars for members of the criminal justice and advocacy communities, and for the general public, regarding the unique experiences of battered women defendants. Our Resource Library contains a comprehensive collection (over 11,000 entries) of articles, case law, litigation materials, and legislation relevant to battered women who find themselves in conflict with the law.

  • How We Help: The vision of the Joyful Heart Foundation is a community with no sexual assault, domestic violence or child abuse.
  • History:
    The fact that these individuals were revealing something so personal to someone they knew only as a character on television demonstrated to Mariska, and to all of us, how desperate they were to be heard, believed, supported and healed.

    Her response was to create Joyful Heart.

    Inspired by her deep connection and love for Hawai‘i, where she first experienced her own heart awakening, Mariska founded Joyful Heart in Kona in 2004, with the intention of helping sexual assault survivors heal and reclaim a sense of joy in their lives.

    Since our inception in 2004, we have raised over $15 million to support our programs and directly served more than 15,000 individuals through our healing programs. We have connected with over 2.5 million individuals through our website and social media efforts. We have secured more than two billion impressions in digital and print media about our issues.

Not Under Bondage: Abuse, Adultery and Desertion

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: Does the Bible permit divorce for domestic abuse? May a divorced Christian remarry? Christian teaching on divorce and remarriage has varied widely. Interpretation of the biblical texts on divorce and remarriage has been hotly contested and the debate is still very much alive.
  • History:
    She was converted to Christ in 1981 but for a long time had minimal biblical teaching and lingering confusion due to her former beliefs. She got sidetracked into other areas and did not get to church for nearly 14 years. Unaware that Christians should avoid marrying non-Christians, she married an unbeliever in 1989 and the couple had one daughter.

    The marriage gradually became abusive and she occasionally took refuge in a women’s shelter. In 1994 she left her husband and started attending church and Bible study. That was when she became a professing Christian. Child custody was contested but eventually awarded to Barbara, with the husband granted access.

    After four years her separated husband made a profession of faith and they reconciled as a married couple. The abuse recurred and she separated for the last time in 1999, divorcing a few years after that.

    Many years later, she met a man who attested to being a fellow survivor of domestic abuse, and who assured her that he passionately supported her work on domestic abuse. He appeared to be a genuine Christian. She married this man in 2010 but the marriage ended in 2012 because of abuse. What he said didn't end up matching what he did.">Barbara Roberts has been raising awareness of domestic abuse within the conservative evangelical church since 1999. She is a ...(read more)

The Clark County Prosecuting Attorney

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: "The Prosecutor is a servant of the people and the government. He is an advocate for both. He must be vigilant in the quest to seek out and convict the guilty, but must also ensure that the innocent are not wrongly convicted or oppressed. He must strive to preserve the public welfare and safety of all citizens. He must always seek justice."
  • History:
    Intervention systems must not overlook the children, who are themselves victims. The cycle of violence will continue from generation to generation. Children who witness domestic violence in the home are many times more likely to be abusive adults. This is a cost our society cannot afford to pay.

    It is impossible to expect the victim of domestic violence to negotiate the complex maze of the legal system without help. Victim advocates who are knowledgeable about the legal system, and who understand the dynamics of domestic violence, must be available to give assistance. Through the Victim Assistance Program and the Domestic Violence Unit of the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney, help and information is available. An effective coordinated response to domestic violence is essential. Only with the aid of these dedicated professionals can true justice and healing be accomplished. We are proud to assist in making these important services available to the citizens of Clark County.

    Domestic violence occurs among all kinds of people. It cuts across cultural, economic and social boundaries. It can involve the person you've worked with for 10 years, your best friend who married her childhood sweetheart, your teenage daughter who just met someone new and exciting, or your next-door neighbor. Together, we can prevent domestic violence. We must work together towards the common goal of insuring the safety of victims, and holding offenders accountable and responsible for their behavior. We must learn to take action. ">The prosecution of domestic violence is among the highest priorities of the Office of the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney.<...(read more)

Men's Resource Center for Change

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: The Men's Resource Center for Change is to support men in developing healthy self-awareness and meaningful personal relationships with women, children and other men that move beyond the limits of masculine stereotypes and social patterns that have divided men historically.
  • History:
    In 1988, the MRC incorporated as a non-profit organization and began offering an array of programs, projects, and services. The domestic abuse program, then called Men Overcoming Violence (MOVE) began in 1989; it was among the first programs to be certified when the state began doing so in 1991. Now called Moving Forward, the program also includes anger management classes, Conscious Communication workshops, and youth violence prevention services. The Youth Programs began in 1990 as the High School Education Project; both the Support Groups and Fathering programs started in 1993 (and then merged). Through these activities thousands of men, women, and young people have been affected by the MRC's message.

    The Men's Resource Connection officially changed its name to the Men's Resource Center of Western Massachusetts in 1993. In 1996, the MRC inaugurated an awards celebration, each year honoring community members whose lives and work reflect a new vision of masculinity, leadership, and social change. In 1998, the MRC conducted an intensive training for a group in the Southwest which resulted in the creation of the independent Men's Resource Center of Northern New Mexico. Later that year, the organization purchased a building in downtown Amherst to house its administrative offices and many of its programs. In 1999, the MRC expanded its weekly support group program to Northampton and opened an office in the city of Springfield. The MOVE program began operating groups in our Springfield office, plus groups in Greenfield and Athol to the north, and Belchertown to the east, and the support programs offer open drop-in support groups in Amherst, Northampton, and Greenfield; a group for male survivors of childhood abuse and neglect in Amherst; and a group in Amherst for gay, bisexual, and questioning men.

    In October 2003, the MRC officially went international, with a 12-day training visit to Japan in which we talked about the MRC's approach to stopping domestic violence. For many years, though, the MRC had hosted numerous visitors from many countries, including Sweden, Norway, South Africa, and the former Soviet Republic of Kyrgyzstan.

    In May 2005, in recognition of the fact that our voice extends well beyond western Massachusetts, the MRC changed its name to the Men's Resource Center for Change.">The roots of the Men's Resource Center for Change go back over 30 years. In 1981 the National Conference on Men and Masculini...(read more)

Darkness to Light

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: The ultimate mission of D2L, to end child sexual abuse, can only be accomplished by sharing the solution of prevention, awareness and education with more and more people.
  • History:
    In 2004, we began work on an interactive child sexual abuse prevention training program, called Stewards of Children, available for parents, youth serving organizations, and communities across the nation and globe. Around this time, CNN began running Darkness to Light public service announcements nationally. These pro-bono ads were designed to increase awareness of the prevalence and consequences of child sexual abuse and to drive viewers to educational materials. Countless organizations and individuals found us because of an ad they saw on CNN.

    In 2006, Stewards of Children ONLINE was released as a web based version of the "live" or facilitated version of the training program.

    In 2013, we released a new version of Stewards of Children, updated to reflect current issues facing today's children and communities. This training features a new cast of survivors, experts, and concerned adults, and focuses on The 5 Steps to Protecting Our Children, a modern take on the original 7 Steps. The online version also received a complete makeover thanks to an Impact Grant from Cornerstone Foundation. Currently, Stewards of Children is available online or through a facilitator-led session, in both English and Spanish.

    In 2014, we debuted "Into the Light," a documentary taking a deeper look at child sexual abuse and its effects through the eyes of survivors, most of whom are featured in the newest version of Stewards of Children.

    Today we have 7,700 authorized facilitators who teach the program in 50 states and 16 international locations, and more than 920,000 copies of the training have been distributed to communities around the world.">In 2000, Darkness to Light was created as a nonprofit with the mission of reducing the incidence of child sexual abuse throug...(read more)

Power And Control Domestic Violence In America

Domestic Violence Resource

  • How We Help: In the early 1980s, Ellen Pence, Michael Paymar and other activists in Duluth, MN developed an approach to domestic violence based on the idea that it is the patriarchal values of our society that cau s e so many men to batter women. In their view, men batter women because men feel a sense of entitlement to power and control over women, a sense of entitlement that is inextricably con nected with a range of abusive tactics ultimately derived from violence. Pence, Paymar and their colleagues based their concepts on what they heard from battered women, rather than beginning from an abstract theoretical perspective. Their "wheel of Power and Control" has become a worldwide symbol of domestic violence, a tool that can be found in any shelter anywhere in the world.
