THE STORY:

GREATER WASHINGTON JEWISH COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC ABUSE wrote -

We are seeking to raise funds for the Legal Access Program at the Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Abuse (JCADA). This program will add a legal advocate to a victim’s clinical support team. The legal advocate can help clients navigate the myriad of challenges victims face and guide her or him through the intimidating and costly legal system. The Legal Access Program’s comprehensive approach increases victims’ access to safety for themselves and their children, while reducing costs by creating a team approach for addressing the victim’s legal issues.

 

The faces of domestic abuse are deceptive. They’re not always the people with the shiners under their eyes or the broken bones. in fact, victims assimilate into our everyday lives, ranging from the parent watching their child’s soccer game or the foreign doctor shopping at the grocery store to the teenager roaming with friends through the mall. That’s because domestic abuse doesn’t discriminate. lt affects people of all incomes, ages, genders, nationalities and religions. But there’s one thing they all share: their partners control them. Control takes many forms and is often under the radar, making it all the more insidious. The end result is abusers wreak havoc through verbal taunts, cyberbullying, social isolation, and threats of financial ruin, loss of child custody or immigration status and physical harm to the victims or themselves.

--------------------

CONSIDER:

To the outside world, Jane and Robert have the perfect life. They live in a beautiful home, drive fancy cars, have two children in private school and spend summers at their vacation home at the beach. But Jane harbors many secrets about Robert that she’s afraid of sharing, even with her closest friends. 

When out in public, Jane looks impeccable. Little would anyone imagine that on a daily basis, Robert dictates the clothes she wears. But his controlling behavior goes beyond Jane’s physical appearance, a mirror of his financial success. Robert has a tracking device on Jane's car and only gives her $5 a day for gas and expenses. That way, he always knows where she goes and knows it can’t be very far. 

One day, Jane was driving with their son and ran out of gas. Her son questioned why Jane had been so careless and inattentive. Jane called Robert to come help them. Jane looked like a fool while Robert looked like a hero. Jane could never admit to her son that his “hero” was the cause of the problem in the first place.

--------------------

To ensure the well being of those in need, JCADA offers crisis services, safety planing, counseling, transitional housing, legal assistance and educational
programs. 

But JCADA can’t help the community if the community
doesn't help JCADA. Whether people donate their time, their money or simply spread the word about JCADA’s resources, its ability to continue to provide quality service depends on you.
