About DAVAP

The Army’s Domestic Abuse Victim Advocacy Program (DAVAP) lies within the Family Advocacy Program (FAP) and is a required prevention program established in 2004. It provides comprehensive assistance and support to victims of domestic abuse, including crisis intervention, risk assessment, safety planning, assistance securing medical treatment, information on legal rights and proceedings, and referrals to military and civilian shelters and other resources available to victims. Child advocacy services are provided to non-offending parent/guardians of children when directed by the FAP or by a judge.
