2013-2014 Annual Report
The Alliance goes to Nashville
Marketing the Log Dog Kennels Project in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry
And Log Dog Kennels and the Alliance are on social media, including Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter!
Why Social Media?
Why is The Alliance using Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter?

Because you get to build "long-lasting relationships with customers and professional contacts" and relay "to them the type of content and expertise they will want to share"
"73% of adults in North America use social networking"

"92% of respondents said that social media marketing is important to their businesses"

"Social commerce sales will reach $30,000,000,000 by 2015"

Awareness Event in Cherokee County
Domestic Violence
The Alliance helps raise
awareness through events!
Through the Arrest Grant
Jennifer Stevens, ADA
for DV and SA Victims
Amy Jicha, Investigator
of DV and SA Crimes
"The victims in our cases are already fighting enormous battles to escape danger, protect their families, and heal from abuse. When it comes to prosecution, they need dedicated support and guidance. I'm honored to come alongside those who bravely confront their abusers and shed light on what they've endured as we work toward justice."

Stats that Prove
The Impact of a Special Prosecution Team
Jennifer Stevens and Amy Jicha have been a vital part of the DA's Office for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prosecution. Through the Arrest Grant, there are greater conviction rates.

The Alliance helps educate the region about signs of domestic violence.
The Alliance produces materials and distributes them in order to educate victims and communities about victim rights.
The Alliance ensures that victims can learn how to get DVPOs by distributing materials throughout the seven counties, and will often assist and support victims by taking them to the magistrate to file for one.
Studies show that children exposed to violence experience psychological trauma long after the abusive incidents, and become part of domestic violence later--either as victims or abusers.
"Being able to serve survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, both in and out of the courtroom, has been a dream come true and the most rewarding experience of my life."
Reaching out to other cultures to ensure their safety as well, as part of our mission.

Training Events
The Alliance leads and facilitates trainings that help the community and its collaborative partners in its fight against domestic violence and sexual assault.

Cultural Competency
Immigrants are often abused, with no knowledge of their new culture and have language barriers. They are afraid of deportation and require reassurance and cultural sensitivity.

Children Exposed to Violence
It is important for the community to understand the trauma involved with children exposed to violence and what measures to take if it seems like a child is being exposed.
Human Trafficking
Human trafficking takes place everywhere, including the US and even in Haywood County. Trainings conducted help people see the signs of human trafficking and how to help these victims.
Elder Abuse
and Those with Disabilities
Elders and those with disabilities are often the most vulnerable. They are often dependent on others for their care and are therefore easy to take advantage of.
Sexual Assault Response Team
The Alliance's members and its partner members are part of the Sexual Assault ResponseTeam. They help train law enforcement better respond to sexual assault.
Karen Arias
Karen serves as a bilingual victims' advocate. She often helps lead these trainings, particularly human trafficking and multicultural competency trainings.
Despite setbacks, like the Great Office Flood of 2013, the Alliance has:
Distributed 57,254 materials
