Since 1985, Family Assistance Program (FAP), formally known as High Desert Domestic Violence Program (HDDVP) has been providing shelter and advocacy services to victims of domestic violence (DV).
Throughout the years, the agency has grown into a larger shelter, a separate outreach office, a transitional housing program, satellite offices in the cities of San Bernardino and Fontana, and most recently we have embarked on several new programs: Community Health Workers for the LGBT Community, a runaway/homeless youth shelter in Redlands, and a Homeless Youth Street Outreach Team and Drop-in Center.
As the community needs have been identified, the agency has grown to accommodate and assist our population.
We provide assistance with restraining orders, advocacy, homelessness, homeless prevention, rapid re-housing, preventative services through teen violence classes, family/group/individual counseling, supervised visitation, and the distribution of household commodities are just some of the services we provide to our community in need.
It is our goal and continued effort to build stronger families through other services that do not necessarily pertain only to Domestic Violence. Our agency is growing more diversified as the community develops and the needs are assessed. In turn, all these services have been offered in an effort to assist low-income families in creating safe and stable homes.
Understanding the diversified needs of our community, we offer classes, advocacy, and offer various services in both English and Spanish.
