Being there for our community is what we do at AVP, and for the first time since 2020, we are thrilled to announce the return of office walk-in hours!
AVP’s services are designed by and for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, queer and non-binary people, and people living with HIV who have also experienced violence or harm.
Our free and confidential support is for people in our communities who have experienced any type of violence at any time, such as hate violence, intimate partner violence/gender-based violence (commonly called domestic violence) and institutional violence.
Our services include free crisis counseling, legal consultations, and advocacy support. During this brief consultation, we will work with you to identify your priorities and connect you with the appropriate resources to help you in your time of need.
AVP’s walk-in hours are available on Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 12-4 PM at 116 Nassau St. in lower Manhattan. Upon arrival, advise the front desk that you are going to ‘AVP on the 3rd floor’ and a staff member will attend at the door.
For immediate support, contact AVP’s 24-hour English/Español hotline at 212-714-1141 or visit us online at www.avp.org/get-help.<
