AVDA at a Crossroads

As part of the anti-violence movement, we recognize the role we can play in racial justice. 

40 Years of New Beginnings!

Discover the powerful stories of domestic violence survivors whose lives were transformed with the help of AVDA. 

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. Beginning Saturday, July 25, AVDA’s Houston office will offer Saturday client intakes (remotely) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday 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.

AVDA sirve a todas las víctimas sin importar su estado de ciudadanía.
