The Action Alliance has developed an Accreditation process for local Sexual and Domestic Violence Agencies operating in the Commonwealth of Virginia to ensure that people who have experienced sexual and/or domestic violence throughout Virginia can expect to receive specific services regardless of their locality in Virginia, and that these Agencies have the infrastructure necessary to provide these services.
Virginia ’s Sexual and Domestic Violence Agencies value empowerment and promote the dignity and respect of all persons. Local Agencies develop specialized services based on the belief that persons who have experienced sexual and/or domestic violence have the right to determine their own response. The immediate availability of crisis intervention and support services is important in facilitating the healing process.
Sexual and Domestic Violence Agencies throughout the Commonwealth are providing services based on a variety of philosophies and perspectives. The purpose of these Criteria is to provide a foundation for the delivery of effective services and the development of creative approaches that bring us closer to our shared goal: the elimination of violence in the lives of women, children and men.
