AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse) focuses on Non-Profit Family Violence Prevention. Our goal at AVDA is to end family violence by educating individuals, offering legal and counseling services, and fostering a community response to abuse. As an organization centered on non-profit family violence prevention, we hope to build and grow programs in the greater Houston area that both sheds light on the subject and serves a purpose.
