Make A Difference

Your legal counsel was exactly what I needed to stop shaking in the middle of the storm. Your care and compassion is communicated to people immediately, and I’m so glad I waited the extra day in order to meet with a LGBT-friendly counselor. My sincerest thanks for everything you have done for me and continue to do for our community.

AVP counseled me and empowered me. What was done to me – what is done to any survivor – it takes power away from them. What AVP does is give you that power back. AVP is my family. They made a change in me and in countless others. Client, volunteer, staff
