Make a Gift To AVP: Congratulations Taylor and Chris

New York City Anti-Violence Project (AVP) is an organization that supports LGBTQ and HIV-affected survivors of violence through counseling, advocacy and legal services while working towards a violence-free tomorrow.

The cornerstone of AVP programming is our free 24/7 bilingual hotline which receives over 2000 calls a year from LGBTQ and HIV-affected survivors of violence. These callers then benefit from free, confidential services including counseling, economic support, safety planning, housing and benefits acquisition, a full legal services clinic and more. Callers to the hotline become AVP clients who have a web of support from the AVP community, which serves over 21,000 New Yorkers annually. It is estimated that 17% of New Yorkers identify as LGBTQ+, and AVP is the only organization in the city wholly focused on their safety and security.
