PROTECTION FROM ABUSE was founded in 2015 as Protection from Abuse Security Services, a Pennsylvania Non-Profit corporation. PROTECTION FROM ABUSE is a victim services provider offering free safety focused programs to victims of Domestic Violence (and/or Intimate Partner Violence), Human Trafficking, and Sexual Assault nationally. In early 2016, we were granted our 501(c)(3) status from the I.R.S.
In 2016, we formed a number of alliances, including community partnerships with the security firm Life Button 24, and MassMutual’s LifeBridge program. 2016 also marked the organization’s evolution to victim centered advocacy, and our mandated minimum victim advocacy training standards for our program managers, volunteers, and community partners.
2017 is projected to be a year of significant growth for the organization as the we look to grow our Board of Directors, add key Program Managers, and expand our active Volunteer network. We will also be more active in our fundraising and grant writing efforts in an effort to serve as many at-risk victims as our funding will permit.
