A community-based program for the prevention, education, and advocacy against relationship abuse, sexual violence, and child abuse and neglect.
We collaborate with community agencies and organizations to raise awareness and education about relationship abuse and sexual violence, prevention, and what to do in case of a sexual assault. We also provide referrals and resources to local and statewide agencies and programs that can assist the survivors of relationship abuse and sexual violence and their loved ones affected by the trauma.
We provide on-call advocacy for relationship abuse and sexual assault support services, with trained advocates in crisis intervention and sexual assault support services.
The mission of AVA is to empower those victimized by abuse and/or violence through advocacy and crisis intervention and to raise awareness in the community about the cause, impact, and prevention of relationship abuse and sexual violence.
