PAVE Dodge County Nonprofit logo

PAVE was launched in 1978 with a simple — but important — mission: Empowering those affected by violence.

Our services and programs have expanded significantly over four decades, but our core mission has remained the same.

Our dedicated staff and selfless volunteers collectively work together to serve thousands of people every year, working to ensure that no one in Dodge County — or anywhere else — should ever be forced into victimhood.

From our crisis advocates to our childcare volunteers, from our passionate board-members to those who come by every week with toothbrushes and toilet paper, we continue to pursue our organizational mission day in and day out, 365 days a year.

In 1990, we opened our first shelter. It is the bedrock of PAVE, and it can comfortably provide refuge for up to 20 people across five rooms. We have our sights set on expanding this important facility in the years to come.

We have a 24/7 hotline and texting line, providing protection, advocacy, validation and education to all of those in need.

We serve individuals affected by domestic and sexual violence regardless of age, gender expression, sexual orientation, race and socioeconomic status.

While we work closely with law enforcement and the court system, we place our client’s confidentiality above all else.

If you or someone you know is facing a violent environment, always know that we are here. If you would like to join us in furthering the mission of creating this safe space, we can always use supplies, volunteers and funding.

Join us today in creating a safe space for everyone in Dodge County. It’s a hard mission, but one wholly worth working towards.
