Project SODA PREVENTS™ educates teens and young adults about the warning signs of domestic abuse, so they don’t become the victims of tomorrow. We couple our featured book, Sparks in Love: A Survivor’s Story™, with bookmarks that overview the 15 warning signs of domestic abuse. We will distribute at schools, universities, and book fairs. We will begin in Maryland, then distribute nationally.
Project SODA SAFE™ is our core educational and foundational program designed to help abuse victims understand the importance of making a plan before attempting to escape abuse. It focuses on four distinct components that, when followed, can help guide a victim out of abuse safely: Seeking information, Asking for help, Forming a strategy, and Exiting Safely.
Project SODA SUPPLIES™ provides homeless women, children, and families, who have been displaced due to domestic abuse, with brand new jackets, toiletries, clothing, bedding, and blankets while they are at the shelters, or right as they leave and are about to begin their new lives.
Project SODA Self™ is a program for young adults and women focusing on self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-defense. This project is currently in development and will launch in the DC Metro Area, and then nationally.
Project SODA CAP™ will place free advocates next to victims in court. We will give victims written guidelines to help them, and stand with them as they speak to the judge. We will protect, assist, and aid in the acquisition of protection under the law for victims fleeing domestic abuse.
Project SODA POWER™ will forever change family law and abusive homes across the U.S. by offering free or low-cost attorneys to abuse victims seeking a Final Protective Order. We will empower victims to leave abuse, enable family law attorneys to help more victims, and put some order back into the courtrooms of our nation.
