Thanks to you! Another woman will not be murdered in Texas.

Pledge to protect victims of family violence. Take a stand to end family violence.

158 women were killed in Texas in 2015, the deadliest year for women in Texas.  That’s a 19% increase over 2014 as documented by Texas Council on Family Violence.
The Tragic Reality of Domestic Violence in Texas:

And leaving the relationship does not equal safety for the victims. 

  • 43 of of the women killed had ended the relationship.
  • 8 women were in the process of leaving the relationship.
  • 15 married women were separated from their husbands.

Our Goal:
The goal of YQA Foundation Battering Intervention and Prevention Program (BIPP) is to end family violence by:

  • Keeping victims safe.
  • Holding  offenders accountable for their abuse.
  • Empowering offenders to transform their long held pattern of abuse.
  • Increasing our community  outreach and raise awareness of the dynamics of family violence

What we have accomplishment from January 2017 to present:

  • On April 11, 2017, YQA Foundation obtained probationary accreditation status issued by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice-Community Justice Assistance Division (TDCJ-CJAD) to begin providing educational programs for family violence offenders.
  • To be  effective and efficient, we have one full time staff and four unpaid part-time committed staff
  • On June 3, 2017 we began our Battering Intervention & Prevention program, Anger Management and Caring Dads Parenting Skills classes  at our Euless location in Tarrant County.
  • We have launched our website: yqafoundation.org

Next Steps:

  • Expand our educational program in Dallas County by September 30, 2017.
  • Obtain full Accreditation status by 12/31/2017.
  • Increase outreach to the elder population.
  • Raise awareness of family violence and availability of resources among the elder population and the community at large.
