VAdata, managed by the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, is Virginia's web-based data collection system. VAdata was developed to enhance and improve the collection of statewide data from all survivors who use the services of sexual and domestic violence agencies across the state. This project began in April of 1996 through the support of the Violence Against Women Act.
"I would have been lost without the help of the shelter. I probably would not have a safe place to live with my children."
A survivor of domestic violence wrote these words on a survey completed for the community SDVA where services were received. This survey is a part of the data collected within VAdata.
