What We Do

AAFV works to eliminate violence in families and homes by empowering individuals to make positive life choices through advocacy, support, education, affordable housing, awareness, and community involvement.

Our mission has three parts. As Advocates Against Family Violence, we:

  • Restore hope by breathing hope into hearts and healing into lives. Last year, we provided refuge for over 698 women and children in our shelter.
  • Encourage healing as our clients progress on their journey. We provide them with over 19 programs to guide them through their journey.
  • Discover strength by empowering not only our clients, but also the public, to build up future generations and prevent domestic violence in our community.
