TASA is working to end family violence in our community. We do this by providing support services directly to victims, educating the public about family violence, and by providing intensive counseling to abusers.
Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Texoma Alliance to Stop Abuse (TASA).
TASA (formerly known as Texoma Batterers Intervention and Prevention Program) is dedicated to ending family violence in our community. We are accomplishing this goal by providing support services directly to victims, educating the public about family violence, and by providing intensive counseling.
TASA's main focus is on providing services to victims of domestic violence. We work hand-in-hand with local law enforcement to provide victim assistance services within twenty-four hours of a crime being reported. These services include risk and needs assessments, safety planning, counseling, transportation to nearby family violence shelters, and limited financial assistance to help victims begin a new life free from abuse. These services are critical to keeping the women and children of our community safe from violence.
We also provide counseling to men who abuse with the goal of changing their thinking and behavior. TASA began operations in September of 2013 with the opening of our batterer intervention and prevention program. Since then around one-hundred men have participated in our twenty-seven week course that is aimed at reorienting the thinking and behavior of men who abuse. This program is bearing fruit in the form of safer families where violence and abuse are no longer the norm.
In 2018, we created the first ever Domestic Violence High Risk Team (DVHRT) in the Texoma area. This team, which seeks to provide effective interventions for high-risk domestic violence victims, is composed of prosecutors, law enforcement, advocates, and shelter representatives. Our DVHRT Coordinator is a licensed professional counselor who works closely with victims to address the emotional scars left behind by abuse.
