Over the years, the organization has evolved to provide both emergency support and long-term
rehabilitative support and created a comprehensive model that takes women and queer
individuals from a survivor to a thriver. Through our crisis intervention services, women and
queer individuals have access to immediate information about interfacing with the police,
devising safety plans, leaving abusive homes, negotiating with families, legal and medical
referrals and specialized services for children.
Our long-term psycho-social and economic services help in creating a network of care by providing residential services for women, queer individuals and children, counselling and emotional support, financial support, education, skill-building and employment opportunities that will lead to economic freedom. We are also building a robust prevention program with our outreach efforts in schools and colleges on healthy and violence-free relationships; sexual harassment prevention and redressal in workspaces and public spaces; institutional and community programs that work on changing the attitudes and mindsets of people regarding gender and violence.
The prime focus at PCVC is to ensure that we employ a gender-just, DV-informed, trauma- informed, rights-based lens to our work and create an enabling environment for clients that will facilitate more equal and just interactions with patriarchal family and societal structures and institutions so we can all live violence-free lives.
