Contributions from community members are critical to our efforts to support survivors and our Sexual and Domestic Violence Agency (SDVA) members providing vital services.


The Project for the Empowerment of Survivors (PES) is a legal program that provides survivors with access to legal help to identify the actions that will best ensure safety and healing from the trauma of the violence they have experienced and a support system that will improve the likelihood of success as they move forward.

The PES Legal Helpline offers advice and information on issues such as housing, protective orders, employment accommodations, name changes, immigration, access to public benefits, child custody and support, termination of parental rights, crime victim compensation, and Title IX related issues.

If you are an attorney licensed in Virginia who would like to volunteer your services (low bono or pro bono), please contact the PES Team at legal@vsdvalliance.org.

The RISE Fund supports local member sexual and domestic violence agencies in times of disaster. In the wake of many natural and manmade disasters and with the understanding that disasters of various types are likely to happen in the future, the Action Alliance Governing Body established The Rise Fund in order to be more prepared to handle these situations as they arise.

This Fund and associated forms of the Organizational Disaster Preparedness Checklist were established to ensure that the Action Alliance has a process in place to respond quickly and effectively whenever disasters occur.
