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.




An amazing organization that does great work, and their staff is amazing and professional. Truly a safe space for all the 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
