Here at AVDA, we pride ourselves on our Galveston Accredited BIPP Group Recovery Programs which improve not only the lives of our participants, but also the lives of their children and loved ones. AVDA holds BIPP groups in both Dickinson and on Galveston Island.
As the largest provider of battering prevention services in the greater Houston area, our BIPP group recovery program is not only the first to be established within the region, but is also partially funded by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice/Community Justice Assistance Division as one of just two dozen funded programs across the state, each held to a higher standard of practice than non-funded programs. AVDA’s Galveston Accredited BIPP Classes and Programs are part of the larger AVDA BIPP program which offers 17 groups across the region (Harris, Galveston and Montgomery counties) and is instrumental in providing domestic violence training to Probation Departments, Parole Offices, Child Protective Services and others.
