How was DANA founded?
The Alleghany Partnership for Children (Parent Agency of DANA) was established in 1996. The APFC Board of Directors worked within the school system and became aware of the growing number of children having to deal with domestic violence in the home. Many students were showing a drop in grades and having difficulty concentrating on class material. Concerned with the health and educational success of its students, the Board decided to start a DV prevention program. DANA was created in November 1999 by the concerned board members of the Alleghany Partnership for Children.
