The Denver Domestic Violence Coordinating Council (DDVCC) is holding a Comedy Fundraiser on June 9, 2012 from, from 4:00 to 5:45 and from 6:15 pm to 8:00 PM, at Jazz at Jacks in the Denver Pavilions, 500 16th St #320. The exciting event will feature Dan McGowan and John Christ, you won't want to miss it!

The DDVCC serves to develop “Best Practices” within the Denver community and increase the safety of Domestic Abuse victims. This is accomplished through a forum that functions in a "multidisciplinary way" according to the council, "filling in gaps" in existing domestic violence services. The DDVCC functions as a 501(c) (3) agency, working to advocate for domestic abuse survivors, families, and communities.

It is one of many agencies throughout the Denver area that helps pay for services including protection orders, and coordinating community responses to domestic violence and child abuse cases. Among the many duties the DDVCC fulfills includes domestic abuse educational services throughout the Denver metro area.


One way domestic abuse survivors and battered women can gain the self-esteem needed to take steps toward self-sufficiency following repeated abuse is to find adequate work or employment options. Taking steps toward working often helps bolster a woman's self-esteem, which can be crushed following any type of physical, emotional, mental, or sexual abuse. Many women are not able to work in an abusive situation. Being able to take charge of their financial, emotional, and business affairs promotes a true sense of accomplishment and power.

In today’s economy, many families and former abuse survivors are turning toward self-employment and small business opportunities and initiatives to help bolster their esteem and support their families.

Some women have started successful non-profit agencies to help increase awareness of child abuse, domestic violence, and other human services issues. Still others have worked as affiliated for web businesses that simply empower them to overcome poverty. Below are some businesses that many women have started that have proven supportive and profitable to women and other individuals interested in supporting themselves via non-traditional methods.
