Build a Safe, Nonjudgmental Community in the Treasure Valley

To eliminate family violence, Advocates Against Family Violence (AAFV) provides help now and help later. Whether you are in the early days of ending an abusive relationship, wanting to connect with a safer community, or you fall behind on rent or utilities we are here. From your first days in an emergency shelter, to transitional housing, to the first day in a new, safe home, AAFV wants to support you. You can start by making a plan. (See our Safety Planning page for details.) From there, AAFV will connect you to resources throughout your community, county, and state.
