About Jericho Road Dv
Jericho Road Inc. is a 501(c) 3 community based organization that is the vision of Dr. Elena Bascom, a survivor of domestic violence (DV). Due to her experiences as a child and as a victim of domestic violence, Dr. Bascom began outreach work to help other women who were in similar situations. Through this journey, Jericho Road Inc. was born.
The group operated simply as volunteers in north Brooklyn for several years as an unincorporated entity and an unregistered organization. They have conducted several community-based projects geared to meeting the needs of the people. However, the helping of family members, especially those who are victims of domestic violence, is now the organization’s immediate focus.
Seminars & Workshop
The workshop will consist of formation of the batterer. Domestic violence is a unisex problem unlocking the insecurities in either gender. We unveil the history of the aggressor in his or her once vulnerable state.
We discuss the sub categories of domestic violence low self esteem in which a person willingly accepts certain forms of negative behaviors based on the way they feel about themselves.
Why do They Stay?
We discuss the most asked question of domestic violence, Why do they stay with an abuser. Most have no clue to why a person would allow someone to verbally or physically abuse them.

Unfortunately many of our young men and women witness domestic violence in the home and ultimate imitate the abuser and his negative behavior patterns.

youth and help break the patterns of abuse in their lives

EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK
“ My father was very controlling, as well as antisocial and physically abusive to my mom. Father left home when we were very young. He traveled to London and never returned until we were grown. It took a while for us to overcome the emotional trauma of our father’s departure, but as time passed we learned what it really meant. There was no money anywhere. My father was the only source of income. He walked out the door with all our hopes for financial security…” Now, Diana is a special
education teacher with two master degrees.”
“ IDecember 24, 1979, he (my husband) was out the whole night. I was in the kitchen making oatmeal to feed my kids breakfast when he come in at about nine in the morning and said, “What’s taking so long to make my breakfast?” I was still making the food and not saying anything and he continued, “Have you ever had hot oatmeal thrown on you?”…And I didn’t say anything, I just looked out the window and I ‘m like, “Oh God,” and the next thing I know he took the pot off the stove and just pours it on me…” Now, Phyllis is a professional dialysis technician. ”
“Most of the time my father was drunk… and he was a gambler… There was always fighting over money because he didn’t bring any money home… But they were getting into it more and more, and one night my sister told him, “I am tired of you beating my mother!”… My sister went forward and we all followed her and jumped in, and then it was something that I will never forget. My mother kept saying, even though he was beating her, “Don’t hit your father, that’s your father, get off your father!” That taught me a lesson…” Currently, Nadine is an accountant”
In a perfect world, you could read this letter and give when you have the extra cash.
But that's not the world we live in, is it? Rarely does an opportunity to do good come along when we're well-prepared for it. For the past several years, Jericho Road, Inc. has provided scholarships to children in the community with access to:
Educational Seminars and
Our financial aid comes from donations contributed by various generous people and organizations. Our volunteers also contribute their might to the cause.
Poverty is everywhere and the most potent weapon against it is education. But poverty does not nurture education due to lack of funding. The students who are brilliant and want to have a higher education have to depend on scholarships in order to make their dreams of higher education come true.
Every day faced with plethora of adverse situations in our life that causes despair and discomfort. Unfortunately, domestic abuse lives in silence and causes the person getting abused to feel isolated and alone. As a result, we created a place where people can share painful memories and get different perspectives on relationships and life issues. Please join us and share your thoughts.
Has anyone mad you feel inferior in a relationship?
And has it destroyed your self-worth?
We welcome the community and our partners in our stand against abuse and honoring our survivors. Everyday is a constant struggle and we would appreciate if you support our partners and help keep the vision alive.

The psychological affects of domestic violence can be felt long after the violence has ended. Unfortunately, many women and children experiencing violence in the home are rendered homeless upon making the decision to leave their abuser. Help us to plant the seeds of inspiration and create a new beginning for our survivors.
