Site Update

After a major backend overhaul, the CADV site is back up and running. We are taking this opportunity to update some of the pages as we go along, so some may still be a work-in-progress for a bit. Please bear with us as we bring it back to complete functionality.


We’re back!

Last week, this site was hit by a particularly nasty hack and had to be taken down. There is no reason to believe that anything outside of this site was affected. These things are typically easy to recover from, but this left everything, from the site itself to the site database to the backups, in an unrecoverable state. This means that the site will have to be rebuilt from the ground up. Thankfully, most of the essential elements already exist and it’s simply a matter of putting them in the right place. Many things will, however, require a more in-depth approach to recover.

Over the next few weeks, the site will be returning to normal. Until then, please bear with us.

Steps to Safety After a PPO

About 20% of abuse victims file for a personal protection order, or PPO, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Issued by a civil court, a PPO forbids a person from doing something, such as contacting you, coming on to your property or harassing you at work. It allows the survivor to press charges should their abuser not obey the order.

While this piece of paper alone cannot guarantee stalking behavior will end (roughly half of PPOs are violated by the abuser), it can still be important to get one, since many abusers do respect the orders. Should an abuser violate the order, however, they can face fines or jail time. It is important to note that a PPO should be a part of a larger safety plan, and should not be replied upon singularly. offers some safety strategies for that are smart for anyone escaping an abusive situation to follow.
