The safety of victims of domestic violence is our greatest priority, and keeping our staff healthy and safe to respond to those needs is of paramount concern to us. We continue to serve survivors of domestic abuse with free legal representation and counseling. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, we have replaced face-to-face meetings with phone calls and the Zoom conferencing application. AVDA’s Houston office now offers Saturday client intakes (remotely) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the third Saturday of the month to accommodate applicants who work and need Intake Services outside of AVDA’s normal business hours. All survivors of domestic abuse who live in Austin, Fort Bend, Grimes, Harris, Waller and Washington counties may apply for AVDA’s free legal representation and other services, regardless of citizenship status.
Our Battering Intervention and Prevention Program continues via virtual group meetings using the Zoom conferencing platform.
