"Childhood Domestic Violence (CDV) is one of the most pervasive human rights issues of our time”  (UNICEF)

Voices Set Free along with the Childhood Domestic Violence Association, NYC, are hosting training and educational forums in Oregon that address CDV. These workshops are designed for all people that engage with children and adults impacted by Childhood Domestic Violence. Growing up with CDV is the SINGLE BEST PREDICTOR of becoming a victim or perpetrator of domestic violence later in life (UNICEF).


Brian F. Martin, founder of CDVA, and author of the book INVINCIBLE, is leading the way the world understands and treats CDV. The Childhood Domestic Violence Association supports and collaborates with Voices Set Free in our professional training initiatives, to create an effective barrier against and safety net from the impact of CDV among vulnerable populations in the local community and region.For more information contact Louise Bauschard, LCSW

Over 31,000 Oregon children of domestic violence received Domestic Violence services in FFY 2015.

Those who grow up with childhood domestic violence are:
          6 x more likely to commit suicide
          50 % more likely to abuse drugs or alcohol
          74 % more likely to commit a violent crime
          1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 children have experienced abuse


“The impact of Childhood Domestic Violence can be lifelong in terms of physical and mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, and traumatic stress, difficulty in relationships with others, academic and employment failures, and trouble parenting.”
