About TADA: This is an organization with a twofold mission: first to aid victims of domestic violence who are in need through support and the provision of basic necessities and second to educate the public as to the prevalence and destructive nature of domestic abuse. Through these methods, it is the organizationâ€™s goal to end the cycle of violence and avoid the perpetuation of abuse.

Since then, the organization has expanded, and is currently in the process of facilitating the opening of chapters in other schools, including Monsignor Edward Pace High School.
