BLACK SURVIVORS SERVICES

EDUCATION & REFERRALS

IAmProSe provides culturally sensitive education for you, the Black Survivor.  We support you in understanding Domestic Violence and how to protect and keep your children safe.  We understand that your survivorship does not look like other cultures.  Due to the historical oppression of Black people and atrocities that have occurred within the Black Community, we move different.  We assist in Education & Community Referrals for:  (1) Women who decide to stay in the relationship; (2) Women who have decided to leave; and (3) Women who are in post-separation which is the most dangerous time.  General Information Seminars, and Workshops are provided monthly.

CONFLICT RESOLUTION

IAmProSe works to support Black Survivors of Domestic Violence in post-separation issues of family management.  Many times Survivors are having to deal with trying to parent with their abusers.  Family Court systems heighten already sensitive situations by forcing interactions.  Systems are placing Black Mothers directly in harm with no thought rulings of child visitations, child support, and releasing of information.  We work with the Survivor to limit conflict that court systems create. We assist in conflict and dispute resolution services.

COMMUNITY ORGANIZING

Black DV Survivors are dealing with not only abuse and violence, but societal systems of oppression. These systems were created to oppress Black people and for the Black Survivor these systems hinder services and/or protections.
