D.V.A.M. –Domestic Violence Awareness Month(s) programming occurs annually throughout the months of October and November. Activities include weekly crafts, guest speakers, sharing circles and marches.

D*VA – “Diva” is a self care program that derived from D.V.A.M.; it was quickly realized that far and few women as natural care givers were taking time to look after themselves. Activities include weekly crafts, journaling and poetry following D.V.A.M.
